You have probably tried to add the same mode twice. There is also a
missing --addmode.

1. See the present modes X uses with the command 'xrandr'.

2. Generate a modeline with 'cvt 1280 1024'. 

3. Describe the new mode to X:

	xrandr --newmode <modeline_generated_by_cvt>

4. Add the mode for VGA-1 to use:

	xrandr --addmode VGA-1 1280x1024_60

5. Check the output of the 'xrandr' command.

6. Switch to using X with 1280x1024_60:

	xrandr --output VGA-1 --mode 1280x1024_60
