Has anyone tried the non-standard 1280x800 resolution on a Sony VAIO 

The card is an Intel 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Card.

I have applied the 855resolution patch from Alain Poirier's site:

Don't think I've done anything wrong:
- installed the patch
- executable is in /usr/sbin
- set modeline and modes in xorg.conf:
   modeline I got through $ gtf 1280 800 60
   added 1280x800 to the modes (as first item)
- $ su -
- # 855resolution 4d 1280 800
- logged out and restarted X (ctrl+alt backspace)

But the screen resolution sticks to 1024x768. The same when I start the 
patch during boot via /etc/rc.d/rc.local with:
/usr/sbin/855resolution 4d 1280 800

Same applies to a resolution of 1280x768.

I tried the patch on a Ubuntu-Hoary-installation, and it works, but I 
would prefer a FC4-installation, but the resolution is unfortunatelly a 

If anybody got this patch running, I really would appreciate it.
