Installer doesn't offer resolutions to match monitor

User-Agent: Opera/7.54 (Windows NT 5.1; U) [en]
Description of problem:
HP Pavillion zd7260us
17" widescreen display
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700
1. During the install, specify the monitor as a generic laptop
monitor that supports 1680x1050.
2. Click the combo box to select a resolution.
3. There are no appropriate widescreen resolutions available, not
even 1680x1050 (the one specified in the name of the monitor).
To make matters even worse, if you select 1600x1200 (which I did),
when the desktop starts up the bottom of the screen (containing all
the actions necessary to do anything - including logging out!) is not
visible. To further complicate things, X doesn't scroll the desktop
if you mouse to the edge of the screen (as I've seen it do when this
happens in other distros).
These factors make installing FC3Test3 on a widescreen laptop pretty
