While booting I had a closer look at the screen and saw..
unsupported sis chipset (device i/d 0671).
Looked into hardware..reverted to vesa driver. Set it to sis card and
logged out..system complained and went into non-graphics.
Went through screen options and eventualy back to graphics and vesa.
Had the same problem with debian and a list member after a lot of
suffering found a work around in the xorg.conf.
After that it works fine. the specific sis card seem to be problemic in
suse and fedora seem to have no problem.
Fedora..could not find a xorg.conf file?. Maybe copy it.
If centos resolution problem be not fixable I will have to pass. Would
be a pitty.
I really do appreciate your time spend to solve this.
