Yes, put grub.conf back to it's original content (replace the vga=775
line with vga=normal) and modify the "screen" section in
your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to look like this:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

FWIW, all I did was to add the "1280x1024" and "1024x768" entries in
the 'Modes' line and then restart X and you should end up with your
desired resolution(s).

i did that, too, but it won't start X with anything higher than
800x600 in the Modes line. when it didn't work manually, i changed it
in the gui, but when i restarted it just went to a blank screen until
i changed it back to 800x600. then i modified grub with the vga line,
and as i said it worked at 1280x1024, but then no hardware
acceleration anymore. Xorg.0.log complained about the h/vsync, but i'm
using the values provided by samsung. i'm completely baffled. :?:

thanks,
s.c.
