screen resolution Intel 855

I've got a NEC Versa P520 as laptop and Fedora Core 3 can't get my resolution right. When I run XP my resolution is 1400x1050, but FC3 thinks that my video card max. 1024x768 can handle. If I set my monitor to 1400x1050, I get some fuzzy lines in my display. I've found a similar problem at this page .

The program 855resolution doesn't work on my laptop, so is there another way to solve this problem?

I'm not sure this can help but if you're using XFree86 you can manually configure your X server in this file:


Edit this file, scroll down until you see the resolution section and you can change the value to what you think is appropriate.
I suggest you back it up before touching it.
