Fonts, especially small fonts, are of poor quality
on 2560x1600 Dell 3008WFP monitors using dual-link DVI.
This affects Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 beta.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 12 or Fedora 13 beta.
2. Small fonts are of crummy quality when installing operating system.
3. Small fonts are of crummy quality when running operating system.
Small fonts are of poor quality---from unreadable to difficult to read in Firefox and Terminal. Zooming in on these small fonts four times make them bigger and easier to read.

As far as I'm concerned this bug report can be resolved.
I'm no longer having trouble.
I got a Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 card and Fedora 13 worked
out of the box with it.
