It'd be fairly easy to get anaconda to run at a higher resolution - we have X
autoconfiguring itself to the highest supported resolution right now, but
anaconda is just forcing it down to 800x600.  The reason for this is that the
anaconda screen is a fixed size due to the artwork.  We don't really have
screens that are designed for resizing right now so it would just end up looking
weird.
