[ubuntu-uk] Ubuntu 9.04 screen resolution too big

I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04. When it boots and I log in, I get a 
very large screen resolution which makes everything too small. I think 
it is 1280 x something. I want it set to 1152 x 864, and every time 
after logging in I have to access the Nvidia settings to change the 
resolution. If I disable the Nvidia driver, then Ubuntu starts at the 
correct screen resolution.

The monitor is an old CRT screen, 41 cm viewable diagonal size. 1152 x 
864 seems to work best, anything bigger is no good.

So how do I get Ubuntu to remember my choice of resolution for the next 
time I boot?
