I need to set my screen res' to 1280x1024!

Hi all,
I've just installed Fedora 7, works flawlessly but.... My screen resolution is set at 1152x864, while I need it to be 1280x1024. Here I've posted the contents of my xorg.conf file, where do I change/insert my required resolution?

Thanks

Change your SubSection "Display",adding the modelines lines as in example:

SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

Back up your working xorg.conf file, then add the line highlighted below in blue to this section of the file.

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection
If that doesn't work, try installing the driver for your video card and try it again. I nothing works you can always revert to the original xorg.conf.
