Intel 965 and Fedora 7

The same happened to my desktop which has also Intel
G965 graphics. The motherboard is an Intel DG965WH
with a standard VGA 19" TFT monitor. 

I could not set a 1920*1024 mode. Changing the
configuration resulted in an incorrect mode, sometimes
giving roll and flicker effects. The same happened in
Ubuntu Feisty.

All works fine in Fedora Core 6. IIRC the Intel
drivers in F7 and Feisty use native mode setting while
those in FC6 use BIOS mode setting. Perhaps this has
something to do with this?
