I have two i845G desktop systems.

This is a desktop - not a laptop.

I see Sony and assume laptop. I don't think I've actually ever encountered a Sony PC that wasn't a laptop. :-p

After I adjust the comments, etc, should it work at 1024x768 ?

Yes, unless it is an extremely rare display that does not support it. Possibly the VertRefresh range needs to be raised to match what the display actually supports, maybe HorizSync as well. The ranges in it now are conservative, better suited to LCDs than CRTs.

It already defaults to 1280x1024 with no option to change it.

If it's defaulting to 1280x1024, the EDID info must be telling X that 1280x1024 is the preferred native mode. Virtually all currently working desktop displays support 1024x768 at least as a fallback. You should be able to select 1024x768 via krandrtray if it's starting at 1280x1024. If attempts to use 1024x768 fail, maybe see what happens by trying 1152x864.
