You need to edit you XF86Config file so that it will default to the first
screen resolution entry. (You will find it in the Screen section)

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

So in the line above (Modes), change it so that "1024x768" is the default
instead of "1280x1024". This way it will default to the correct screen
settings when you reboot.
