This is not really a gnome issue.  From a terminal or console, try running XF86Setup (case sensitive).  Under "mode" you will find the place to configure resolutions.  The highest one you choose will be the default.  You can move through the resolutions by using ctrl-alt (+ or -)

This is also not a gnome issue, but try this:
as root, edit /etc/resolv.conf
add the lines:
search <your isp>
nameserver <dns#>
nameserver <dns#>    

[your isp shouold provide you w/ 2 dns#'s]
