For the Love of God HELP ME!

I have a Fedora Core 7 installation.
I have a DELL E207WFP LCD monitor that CAN do 1680x1050
I have a Compaq d530 with an onboard Intel 82865G video controller.

I have been trying for hours to get a decent resolution, no matter what I do I get a streched out 1280x1024 resolution. I'm ready to throw this thing through a window.

I upgraded to FC7 because this supposedly has the newer intel driver that supports this monitor.

Have you installed 915resolution ?
PHP Code:
# yum info 915resolution.i386
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Available Packages
16 k
Intel video BIOS hack to support certain resolutions
915resolution is a tool to modify the video BIOS of the 800 and 900 series
Intel graphics chipsets
This includes the 845G855G, and 865G chipsets, as
well as 915G915GM, and 945G chipsetsThis modification is necessary to
allow the display of certain graphics resolutions 
for an Xorg or XFree86
graphics server

915resolution's modifications of the BIOS are transient. There is no risk of
permanent modification of the BIOS. This also means that 915resolution must be
run every time the computer boots inorder for it'
s changes to take effect.

915resolution is derived from the tool 855resolutionHoweverthe code
differs substantially
915resolution's code base is much simpler.
915resolution also allows the modification of bits per pixel. 
yum install 915resolution.

you need to use the "intel" video driver. You are using "i810"

Side Note:
Sorry, I don't believe in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God, but I may believe in Buddha, Alla or maybe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immanual_Kant, but I prefer to believe in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeus. It's my Choice.
I'm an http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel, really and I believe (sometimes) in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science and that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_Is_Flat. Other times, I believe that paradise is lost, so sue me.
