Default GeForce 7900 GT working, but stuck in 1280x1024

GeForce 7900 GT only gives me 1280x1024 resolution, I really would like other resolutions, especially 1028x780. I got the GeForce 7900 working by running the nvidia installer, then
#Xorg -configure
to create the basic xorg.conf file, /root/xorg.conf.new, which I then copied to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (attached) after testing it with
#X -conf /root/xorg.conf.new
then I ran
to tweak the basic xorg.conf file created by Xorg

I played a game of Unreal Tournament in Mandriva Linux and it played great.
However X is stuck in 1280x1024 mode. I want to get back to a mode of
1028x780 but can not figure out how to do that. "Configure Desktop" shows
only 1280x1024, no other display modes. Anybody have a clue how to fix
this and I am in business.

That xorg.conf is really not much more than a stub.
Try adding "DefaultDepth 24" in your "screen" section just below the line "Monitor "Monitor0"" (just to be on the safe side).
Then add some modes to the last SubSection (the one that says "Depth 24")
like this:
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
for example.
