1) This is a Linux Ubuntu (version 10.04.3) workstation in the Enterprise environment
2) This machines
- getting the IP address from DHCP server
- LAN and internet work well in this machine

3) Problem: This machine periodically "Crash" out of the Ubuntu GUI with a message about the Screen Resolution is set too low

4) I am a windows guy, and I need the confirmation (or 2nd opinion) from Experts

5) My Proposed Solution:
- I am using the GUI
-I go to System>Preferences>Monitor
- The current resolution : 800 X 600
- I select and change it to 1024 x 768
- I click Apply

6) My question:
- I am logging in as Jack
- And now I am at Jack@Ubuntu-10:~$
- If I execute #5, Everytime Jack logins, he will get the resolution of 1024X768 in his monitor, right?
- Experts: Please confirm Yes or No
- If NO, how to make it the resolution 1024 x 768 PERMANENT for Jack

7) Thanks

You are correct, once Jack has set the screen resolution is will "stick" for Jack.
This does not set the default or login screen resolution. To set that see Ubuntu 10.04 – Default Login Screen Resolution.
