RFE: make default after-installation resolution for X11 as 1024x768 instead of auto



Problem:
A friend of mine want to try out Fedora, he have high end gfx (nvidia)
card but his monitor have a low maximum resolution .. the installer
worked fine but after installation , when the system trying to load X
, the monitor goes out of range ... a boot into init 1 and change
xorg.conf to inserted modes 1024x768 into the conf fixed the problem
... the auto resolution seems to try to use the highest resolution
available which in this case is beyond the monitor limit ...

an experienced user like might know how to do this .. but not new
users ... therefore .. i'm suggesting the installation will set
maximum resolution for first time installation to 1024x768 and provide
the user the option to change the resolution later ...

afaicr, older fedora/redhat have a screen resolution test that require
user confirmaton on its first run .. but not the current installer ..
