Xfree Config

I'm not super new to linux, I've done some stuff, but this seems like a trivial problem.

I installed Slackware 10, it's starting using the Framebuffer console, and I can't get X to start in anything but 1024x768.

In my lilo.conf I have vga = 795, which should be 1280x1024 at 24 bit color. The console seems like it's in a higher res than X when it starts up.

My xorg.conf...
$ cat xorg.conf |grep "Modes"
Modes "1280x1024"
Modes "1280x1024"
Modes "1280x1024"
Modes "1280x1024"

The default depth is set to 24. X says it's using /etc/xorg.conf, which is the one I'm looking at and editing. My lilo.conf is the right one, cause I've changed it, and added kernels and my mode seems to be set right.

Please help! Thank you.

If you didn't compile xorg from source that should
be /etc/X11/xorg.conf ... also, check the log-
file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) to see more detail of what's
going on. Also, which driver are you using for X?
