F11: Why is Xorg with Intel 945 failing to allow 1600x1200 resolutions?

On Fedora 8/9, I was able to drop in my xorg.conf
file into /etc/X11 directory and was able to get
the X display to recognize the Monitor type and
I get 1600x1200 resolution, but for some reason,
I am not able to do this with Fedora 11.
My monitor is a Hitachi CM715, and my onboard
video chip is an Intel 82945G/GZ Integrated graphics
I have tried system-config-display & it seems
to limit my resolution to 1280x1024. I note with
this tool, there is no possible way to change the
vertical refresh rate.
I know that F8/9, Ubuntu 8/9, and Debian 5 works with
1600x1200 mode, I haven't tried Fedora 10, and Fedora
11 is limited to 1280x1024.
It seems to me that xorg on F11 is a version that does
not support 1600x1200 mode.
I have supplied an attachment for Xorg.0.log with this post.
How can I resolve this problem?
