    We've been successfully using this mode line:
    Modeline "1440x900x60" 108.84 1440 1472 1880 1912 900 918 927 946

    previously with Fedora. However the same mode line doesn't work with Fedora 9 complaining that there are no matching modes. Has anyone else seen this problem? If so have you come up with a solution?

    Hello,
    I'm using Parallels 3.0 build 5600 on a Macboo Pro Intel Core Duo, Ati card.
    I'm using Fedora 9 with parallels 3.0 without any software additions and it works fine for me. I was not able to use 24 bit Depth, so 16 bit is configured.
    With this configuration, fedora 9 is in full screen mode, no dynamic resize, I'm not interesting in.
    I set the same modeline I'm using for Solaris 10u4 and OpenSolaris 11 2008-05.
    Here is my xorg.conf, (Take care, keyboard settings are for my french keyboard !!)

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "single head configuration"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbModel" "macintosh"
    Option "XkbLayout" "fr"
    Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:lwin_switch"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Parallels"
    Driver "vesa"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "MacbookPro"
    HorizSync 31.5 - 100
    VertRefresh 59.0 - 75.0
    Modeline "1440x900_60.0" 106.47 1440 1520 1672 1904 900 901 904 932 -HSync +Vsync
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen 1"
    Device "Parallels"

    I am checking it now, but if it is binary compatible it should work, personally I didn't test it yet
