Description of problem:
I did a fresh install of test2 on my laptop. During the install I selected
Generic Laptop LCD @ 1400x1050.

When the box booted the for the first time, it came up in 1024x768.

When I checked the /etc/X11/XF86Config the "Modes" line was the following:

                Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

I believe I had this problem in test1 as well.

I have a Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop with a ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 and a
1400x1050 LCD.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a clean install of Severn2.

You can use the 'Screen Resolution' application under 'Preferences' in the panel
menu, or redhat-config-xfree86 to change the resolution.  We just choose a sane
default based on the hardware in the system.  We do not have enough information
available at install time to determine the LCD's native resolution.  

I have a hack which will basically look at the monitor ID and sets the
resolution to the resolution in specification if its a LCD.

Your right, I never selected the resolution. 

What threw me off is that when selecting the LCD it has the resolution listed
next to the selection.

Your hack would be nice to have rolled in.

I installed beta 3, during the install I selected that I had a 1400x1050 LCD. On
the reboot, that the resolution it was using. The XF86Config look good.
