There should be a tool to change your resolution in Fedora 3. It should be titled like "display" or "resolution changer" or something like that. You can also try editing your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Best solution with this is to edit your xorg.conf manually editing sync and refresh rates and also adding
additional resolutions at corresponding lines
