Data Gnome malfunctioning

I dual-booted a Pentium 166 with 48mbs of RAM and 2 gig HD between Windows 95 and Redhat 7.

I installed the workstation setup, and selected Gnome as my GUI. Everything went fine, setup was great, no bugs. My monitor is ancient, so it was in the monitor list, and I entered my VRAM as 1mb.

All was well, until I attempted to use Gnome. The loading screens were OK, but everything else was blotchy, gray areas covered icons and menus, and, shortly put: Horrible.

I have no idea what to do, I have considered reinstallation, but have dismissed that thus far as an act of insanity.

Any help? I hope I gave enough info here..

Make the question in one thread. You post the same question in the Dummies Q&A Forum.
* As i suggested before have you tried to check the Xconfigurator $xconfigurator or $setup check your X Configurator Menu. Try to set the VGA Bit from 24 to 16Bit and also your VGA Settings from 1024x768 to 800x600. Also do check your Video RAM Settings. If it really doesnt help. Pls post back.
