This did not work here on an acer laptop with C5.1;
because I used the 915resolution rpm from rpmforge and this does not 
include an init script...

I did to make it work:

- installed the 915resolution-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.rpm from rpmforge
- added the following line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
/usr/sbin/915resolution 54 1280 800 32
- that's all; no need to fiddle with xorg.conf because it just changes 
the reolution #54 from 1024x768 to 1280x800
