Fedora - Video Mode Not Supported

I downloaded and installed Red Hat Fedora and performed the graphical install. During the install process it could not detect my monitor type so I selected a monitor that was similar to mine and changed the HorizSync and VertRefresh rates to reflect my monitors capabilities.

After the installation was completed and the system rebooted I received the "Video Mode Not Supported" message. I am not sure if this message was caused by my monitor not being detected properly or my video card which is a NVIDIA TNT2 video card.

Any help that could be provided to help me get up and running would be greatly appreciated.

What does the bottom half of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or XF86config say?

What is it?

a) Fedora Core 1,
b) Fedora Core 2,
c) Fedora Core 3.

It really helps if you tell more about your system
