Question Another Graphic Problem

Hi I am using Fedora 8 and hell this time really must say that they have simply outdone themselves so now everything else is fine but the main problem is that i have installed my graphic drivers for Nvidia 7100 Gs card and its running smoothly but whenever i change my resolution to some high amount and try to save it it gives a strange message saying:-
Unable to create new X config backup file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'.
although when i apply the resolution everything works fine but when i restart my computer my resolution goes back to 1024*768 automatically!!
now can someone please help me out!! PLEASE

Hi fireblade_spark, Are you making the changes as a regular user? You need to make permanent changes like that as root or su.
Good luck. ;-)
