How to change Fluxbox resolution?

Hi folks,
I've installed FBSD 8.2 and Fluxbox. Fluxbox works just fine, but I
can't figure out how to change my resolution to 1024x768 (my monitor
is a 19" - but the square format, not widescreen format). When Fluxbox's too wide for my monitor.

Here's what I've done:

1.	pkg_add –r xorg

2.	pkg_add –r fluxbox

3.	# Xorg -configure

4.	# cp /root/ /etc/X11/xorg.conf

5.	# echo hald_enable=\”YES\" >> /etc/rc.conf

6.	# echo dbus_enable=\”YES\" >> /etc/rc.conf

7.	reboot

8.	# echo “/usr/local/bin/startfluxbox” >> ~/.xinitrc

9.	startx

I've edited xorg.conf and added a 1024x768 entry, but apparently
something's not right.

Comments? Suggestions?

Thank you,
