Probably not ... the installer probably just selected one resolution by
default.  The system-config-display GUI looks like it only lets you
select one screen resolution only.

I normally manually add the resolutions I want at home by editing the
xorg.conf file.  The CentOS systems I'm running are servers and don't
have the GUI setup on them and it's been a bit since I've done a
Workstation/Desktop install.
