RedHat 8.0 - Inspiron 8200 - 1600x1200
After installing RedHat 8.0 on my Dell Inspiron 8200, all the 8.0 updates including the 2.4.18-18.8.0 kernel RPM, and the two suggested NVidia RPM's, I couldn't seem to get the display to go any higher than a 1400x1050 resolution.

The XFree log file had a message saying that the 1600x1200 mode exceeded the memory bandwidth.

On a hunch I added:

Option "NoBandWidthTest" "on"

to the device section and got 1600x1200 to work. It seems to be fine. If there is a better solution for this problem I'd like to know about it.

I also added:

DisplaySize 305 229

to the monitor section and that seemed to clear up some fuzziness.

Hope this info helps someone else avoid the several hours I spent digging around in the X configuration docs and experimenting...
