Default Cannot set 1920x1080 resolution on GeForce4 MX 44 AGP8X

I have installed the Nvidia driver (96.43.18) for my graphics card to get 3D graphics acceleration running Fedora 13. This has worked fine! However...

The maximum resolution that the Nvidia X Server Settings app allows me to set is 1600x1200 - this is not ideal for my widescreen monitor which supports 1920x1080. (ViewSonic VX2433wm). I can get 1920x1080 using the "nv" driver, so it is clearly not a hardware issue.

Here is my xorg.conf - I have tinkered with it a lot with no success, and have restored it back to the original file (more or less).

I have attached the nvidia bug report.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
