I just got GRUB to properly set the resolution, thanks to this wonderful answer. After selecting Fedora 17 and waiting a bit, this displays:
[ 0.752888] [Firmware Bug]: powernow-k8: No compatible ACPI _PSS objects found. [ 0.752888] [Firmware Bug]: powernow-k8: Try again with latest BIOS.
(These two have dissappeared since enabling the Cool'n'Quiet BIOS setting)

Knoppix and Fedora live boots work fine, though. Anything I short reinstalling Fedora I can to do to fix this?
What other specs or information would be needed?
