Screen Resolution on Dell D800

Hey, I am using a dell D800 Latitude with the 15.4" screen. I have Fedora installed but it is only taking up a small portion of the screen, with black space all around it. It did not recognize my screen during installation so I went with the largest generic LCD. Any suggestions on how to get it larger on the screen?

Perhaps you could try manually editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or XF86Config) and adding the modes appropriate to your screentype.
