I recently had major problems getting Fedora 13 to work on the E6410 ( worked 
fine on the E6510 ;-) )

See the thread "Fedora 13 on Dell E6410 screen resolution problem" on the 
Fedora Mailing list for a discussion and solution to the problem. 

The laptop had a NVidia graphics controller, unlike yours, and the solution 
involved using the propritory NVidia drivers.
