I think the two options are System -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution
 and System -> Administration -> Display.  The ViewSonic VG2030WM is  
 not included in the Display -> Hardware -> Monitor Type so I've been
  using the generic "LCD Panel 1680X1050".  Is there some other way I
 can tell FC6 and X exactly what monitor I have or at least get a
 higher resolution?
