The Intel driver uses the bios to determine resolutions, you need to use an app to change the bios resolution if you want 1920x1200. The default is 1920x1400, which won't display properly. You'll also need a 1920x1200 modeline, I've included it at the bottom of the post. Install the RPM and run 855resolution.

I've also included an init.d script to change the setting at boot, just edit /etc/sysconfig/855resolution: MODE=5c X=1920 Y=1200
