Default twinview: Max 24 bit rez 1024x1280? - FC3 2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp 6800 Ultra

Fedora Core 3
2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp
Dual SGI (Sony) 20" GDM-4011P Monitors
6800 Ultra (256mb)
6629 Driver

I have been unable to get my card to output any higher that 1024x1280, 1024x1280 with my new 6800 Ultra that I installed when I upgraded from RH9 to FC3 with twinview.

As this is my main workstation for work and I typically have a gazillion graphics applications up itś a little low in terms of screen real estate for me. I would be eternally grateful if someone would help me sort this out so I could get to AT LEAST 1400x1050, 1400x1050 however 1920x1440 would be my preferance. It needs to be 24 bit however (8, 8, 8)

My xorg.conf file is pasted in below.

Thanks a million,

J

Atleast you need to have this in your screen/device section:
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-96"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "48-160"
