Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2006-07-25 09:38:02 EDT
Waiting on a resolution flag to be added to the X server's command line.  That
should take care of this quite nicely.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2006-07-28 13:17:11 EDT
Fixed by adding a new screen section to the X config for anaconda.  Will be in
the next build.
