      Hello,

      I have some problem with the screen display on fedora. Fedora don't
      recognize automatically my monitor, so I change the XF86config file to
      a new file found on the web. But the only files I have found are for
      1600x1050 WS(U)XGA+ display... And I have just a WXGA 1280x800
      monitor. With this file the length display is ok, but the height
      display have some problem: it is too much large for the monitor, and I
      have to scroll with my mouse to see all the desktop.

      Do you know where I can find a XF86config file for my dell laptop?

      Thanks in advance!

      PS: I am french, so escuse me for my awfull english...
