I didn't know about the system-config-display command. I'll try that next time.
What I did was modify my /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and changed the "NVIDIA" line to "nv". It works for now so yay.

So I booted, and this time Fedora 9 found my correct resolution.
But next time I boot, Fedora may decide to lock me into 800X600

Would system-config-display help with my random 800X600 resolution problem?
Thanks
