Problems with Dell 2001FP monitor

I was trying to install FC5 on a Dell XPS with a Dell 2001FP (1600x1200) 
monitor. However, during installation I can only see a part of the 
screen the rest is out of bounds. Thus I cannot click on the 'Next', 
'Previous' buttons, as I don't see them.

Could someone plaese give me a hint on what I can use to get a higher 
resolution during install?

Is there a linux vga=??? boot kernel option that doesn't turn off DMA 
and gets me a higher resolution so that the whole install screen is 
visible to me?

Thanks in advance for any hint. I'd really like to be able to install 
FC5 using the graphical mode.
