"Out-of-the-box, the Intel video bios doesn't support a monitor at1680x1050 resolution, which is what my Acer widescreen monitor runs at.

Here is a complete set of instructions to make an Acer AL2223W 22" monitor work with Fedora Linux and an Intel 915G video chipset. I originally set this up on Fedora Core 6 but have subsequently updated this computer to Fedora 7 using exactly the same method, so it has been tested with both of these operating systems and works well with my setup."
