It'll let you make the change to 1280x1024 just fine, but the display 
simply won't go. The default is to load DRI (direct rendering) modules, 
but when I run glxinfo I get the following output stating it's actually 
not on. Perhaps this is a reason for it not working, I'm not sure.

name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No

This is way beyond my knowledge of X11, so I think for now I'm not going 
to worry about it. I might Google a bit on how to turn on direct 
rendering, if not it works fine with 1024x768...

Thanks again.
