No. 915resolution was for the old i810 driver which used the BIOS to
modeswitch, so you had to patch some tables in the BIOS to get the resolution
you wanted. Fedora 9 uses the new intel driver instead, which does modesetting
entirely in the driver, so it's just a matter of configuring the driver for the
correct screen size (try system-config-display).
