How can I set my 16x10 monitor to 1280x800, instead of the native 1400x900 (too small.) I have a Nvidia 9400 with a viewsonic 19". I have installed the Nvidia drivers and the Nvidia control panel shows the correct Monitor but does not show 1280x800. I have just installed Mint 6, coming from SUSE 11.1, which did allow me to use 1280x800. When I look at xorg.conf it does not show resolutions to edit.
How does one change screen resolution to one that is not listed?

No, thats why I was hoping I could edit my conf file. Same monitor, video card and machine I used with openSUSE (though I'll stay with Mint even if I can't change it!) Also I forgot to mention I'm using KDE 4.2
