Strange... I'm running it at 1280x800 (vesa) in my notebook, which has the 
same video chipset as yours, and all I did was to follow the steps I've 
described in my last mail. In short, I selected a 1280x800 LCD monitor using 
system-config-display, added manually the resolution I wanted to xorg.conf 
and used 915resolution to replace an unused mode with 1280x800 in the RAM 
shadow of the BIOS.
Maybe we can workaround this by downgrading Xorg to the version which was used 
in FC4 while this bug is not fixed in Xorg 7.
