    In the Monitor section of /etc/X11/XF86Config you need to put this line:

    Modeline "1680x1050" 147.14 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087

    and in the Screen section

    Modes "1680x1050"

    You have to make a change to the X config files. Theres plenty of
    documentation of configuring RH9 for the I8500 on:
