Description of problem:
During Anaconda setup, there is no 1280 x 800 resoution available 
when choosing a standard LCD (or any other monitor I can see). In 
case you're not familiar with this resolution, it's new, but is found 
in a significant percentage of new laptops. Most of the ones on the 
store shelves with the new wide format screens are 1280 x 800. (I 
have a Compaq X1000, but practically every manufacturer now has 
1280x800 laptops.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. During Anaconda setup, choose standard LCD.
2. Try searching for the resolution in any listed monitor

Additional info:

I've run into this on several machines. After installation, I have to 
modify XF86Config to add the correct resolution

Added to MonitorsDB, will be in future builds for manual selection.
May not affect the available X modes, though.
