No way to change refresh rate

No way (in GUI) to change refresh rate of screen. I suspect my screen
is not at a high enough refresh rate (i see flicker and it's making me

Can you update to hwdata-0.124-1 or later and run
system-config-display --reconfig and see if the behaviour improves?
The config file given lists the driver as "vesa". The vesa driver is incapable
of setting video modes not listed in the video bios, and occasionally fails even
In its current state of report, this bug is unfixable. Please reopen if this is
still an issue with FC5.
