Can't set resolution below 1280x1024 on RH9



Have just upgraded a Dell Latitude C800 laptop to Red Hat 9 from 7.2.
It has a 1400x1050 max display and a 32MB ATI Rage 128 Mobility graphics card.
In redhat-config-xfree86, I've set the display type to 
"Dell 1400x1050 Laptop Display Panel".  

When I start X I can only get 1400x1050 or 1280x1024.  It won't change to
1024x768, which makes the laptop useless as I need to connect it to a
projector!

When I change the Modes line in XF86Config from:
    
    Modes    "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

to just:

    Modes    "1024x768"

I get the error below when starting X.  Anyone have any ideas, apart from
downgraded to Red Hat 8???

% startx >& /tmp/out
% cat /tmp/out
