system-config-display, Xorg -configure cannot generate good xorg.conf



Dear all,
   I have run into a problem.  using fc6 test 2.  The
xorg.conf file gives very poor resolution 800x600.  I
tried manually editing xorg.conf and put in the values

Section Monitor 
  HorizSync  30.0 - 69.0
  VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0
  Option   "DPMS"
End Section

Monitor is a "Dell 1028 L".  VideoCard is integrated
into motherboard.  I have put in all the updates.  I
read somewhere that system-config-display has been
depracated in favor of Xorg -configure.

Here's the one generated by xorg -configure (does not
work complains about mouse not being configured
properly)

What should I do?  
I get only 800x600 or 640x480?  The monitor can go up
to "1280x1024".  Suggestions and comments welcome.

Regards,

Antonio
