You need to add a modeline in xorg.conf in the Monitor section.
You can use for example http://zaph.com/Modeline/ to get what you need. I don't know if there's an easier way and why there isn't modelines for 100 Hz by default.

I can't believe that after all this time, Fedora doesn't include a graphical tool to set the refresh rate, or at least the ability to select a rate from a drop down box. The Slackware live CD Personal Edition, does this. So why note Fedora? Linux ready for the desktop indeed!!

Fedora DOES include this, it's called "Screen Resize and Rotate", it's in the under the
System Tools menu. It also will show up on the far right of the KDE toolbar
near the clock. Of course it only allows settings within what it thinks are
the normal range for that display. It could be at install time the display

I'm using Gnome, so I guess I don't have that. So really my beef is with Gnome? :P
THanks for the reply.

Gnome does have it - look under Preferences -> Screen Resolution.

I have the same problem as crisdawg. Anyone got a link to a howto?

Hmmm, can't believe I missed that. However, it only shows up to 85 @ 1024x768, whereas my monitor can handle 120.
