I use the debian installer with a preseed file to perform automatic
installations. How can I preseed the resolution of the display? Now I

xserver-xorg  xserver-xorg/autodetect_monitor       boolean true
xserver-xorg  xserver-xorg/config/monitor/selection-method select medium
xserver-xorg  xserver-xorg/config/monitor/mode-list select 1024x768 at 85Hz
xserver-xorg  xserver-xorg/config/display/modes multiselect 1024x768 1400x1050 1280x1024 1024x768 800x600 640x480
xserver-xorg  xserver-xorg/config/display/default_depth  string 8

Seems to have no impact, the machine comes up with a resolution of
1280x1024. Any hints?
