X loading wrong resolution size


First off whether I load fluxbox or gnome X automatically boots up into 1600x1200. If i boot into gnome I can use the gnome desktop tool to change my resolution to 1280x1024 but it wont boot up automatically. I'll post all info that should be needed. Thanks

i've also recently did another clean install as im still new and had a bunch of stuff from previous install i didnt need and I got it to work fine last install.

xorg.conf
Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor"
        VendorName   "Digital"
        ModelName    "VRT17-HA"
        HorizSync    29-82
        VertRefresh  50-150
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card"
        Monitor    "Monitor"
        DefaultDepth 24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes "1280x1024 1024x768 800x600"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Does the "HorizSync" range match the specifications of your monitor?
Just a thought.

Does redhat have any config tools for setting up X? If you edit the configs manually you may be leaving something out. Try running a config program that sets up X, somone else may know better what they are, I don't know redhat that well.

Xconfigurator sounds very familiar from when I've used redhat, but I'm not sure it's one.
