Red Hat "The Fedora Project attracts a lot of interest from the Linux faithful. While there are perhaps more newbie-friendly, corporate-friendly, or special-interest-focused distributions, Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat. Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. Since Fedora 9 (Stirling) is still in beta, occasional bugs and some rough edges were inevitable. But there is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching."

I had similar experiences trying to get my 21" Eizo CRT running at 1400x1050 which worked without problems in XFree86 (no joke), but X.org allows only 1152x864

Out of curiosity, what card and driver? I can never get 1680x1050 with the nv driver, but the nvidia driver does it fine. If you've added mode lines and all that to no effect, you may be fighting a video driver issue.

Also, perhaps telling the driver to ignore EDIDs, if it supports such an option, might help?
