Fedora 1 and 2test1 do not set the correct resolution for my monitor

Description of problem:
Ok, I actually have this same problem with Fedora 1 and test2 but I
was hoping it would have been corrected in 2 which is why I tried it
out. Anyways here is the problem. During installation I never found a
section to set the resolution for my monitor. After installion
finished, I rebooted my computer. Fedora begins to load and then all
of a suden my monitor goes crazy. Onviously my monitor was not
detected correctly during installation. I have an 15 inch Acer 7156s
monitor. Please fix this problem. When I used redhat I would set my
monitor to run at 800x600 during installation but in Fedora I cannot.
I have been a fan of redhat linux for years and I really want to use
Right before the installer goes into graphic mode, does DDC manage to
detect your monitor?
If you are unstable to see, try booting into the text mode installer
with "text" at the first install prompt. I believe it should tell you
here if the monitor was detected or not. Please report back what
monitor DCC reported, or if it is unable to detect it.
Ok, once again it does not detect it. I have tried this on
many older pentium II and pentium II systems ranging from dells,
compaqs, and HP systems. However, I finally had a break through today.
I noticed in graphical mode if I get to the part where it asks how to
partion the hard drive and I then hit back to where the monitor set up
screen should have been it then appears. Why is this? This is
definatley something that someone who knows nothing about computers
would have been able to figure out.
