Can someone tell me how to get my 23" Apple Cinema display to work
with my Fedora system?
Yes, it is an integrated chip Radeon 9100 IGP, and yes, I have the
display plugged in when I turn on the machine.

Just a bit of background: That 1920 x 1200 display is pushing what DVI
is allowed to do in a single-link DVI.  The official limit is 1.65 Ghz
bit-clock on the DVI wires, which was chosen to allow 1600x1200 at a
moderate refresh rate with a bit of breathing room.  Stuffing
1920x1200 down that line takes some creative shaving.  Some companies
support that resolution over plain old DVI, some don't.  (Ironically,
many cards can do much higher resolutions over the analog outputs than
over the digital outputs.)

Does /var/log/Xorg.0.log say anything interesting?

I set it up at 1600X1200 fearing that the system would not be able to handle anything bigger than that. It didn't work.
I found nothing related to the display in the logs.
