Widescreen Monitor and Windows 98se

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a multi boot machine (using an NVIDIA graphics card) that I can boot
in Linux, Windows XP Pro and Windows 98se and I have just acquired a 19 inch
widescreen monitor with native resolution of 1440 x 900 at 60hzs.

Linux had a 1440 x 900 option in the list of available resolutions and that
worked fine.    Windows XP did not but I was able to create a custom setting
and that works fine.   The odd one is Windows 98se.   I have the option to
set custom resolutions but when I enter 1440 x 900 it says that the custom
resolution cannot be added.

Is this because Windows 98se cannot handle that resolution or is there a way
around.   Currently, in Win 98se I am using 1280 x 800 which gives me the
same height/width ratio but I would like to get it to 1440 x 900 if
