Hello, I am somewhat new to linux. I just installed Red Hat 7.2 and when I try to load gnome or KDE in colors above 8bit it will kind of lock up and display some wierd scrambled cable look. I have an ATI Radeon 7000. I check out my monitor settings they are fine. Is it the graphics card? I set my graphics card to a generic radeon. Any Ideas? Also I have a Broadxent DSI V.92 Modem and I don't have any drivers for it. I could use some help with that one too. I'm on Win2k right now. Thanks

I just upgraded from RH 7.3 to 8.0, but I have the same graphics adapter as yourself. When you are going through the install does it autoprobe a Radeon VE QY? If it does this then DO NOT change this setting. I ran mine on 24-bit color when I was using 7.3, just by accepting the defaults in the beginning and tweaking them at the end of the install. Hope this helps.
