Graphics install on Linux

I'm trying to get RedHat 7.0 working on a Dell Latitude c600/c610 working. Well the graphics driver anyway.

See no matter what I configure it wont work. Run Xconfigurator and it wont have the right drivers installed for me to pick etc etc. So I'll run Xconfigurator get a generic driver, select the resolution and then it'll accept it. Ok that's fine with me I don't care what drivers it picks.

The problems I am having though is with the Resolution. No matter what I can think of doing it wont get the 1024x768 resolution. Configure the /etc/X11/**All confige files** and nothing. Still stuck at some huge ass resolution where I can see about a 1/4 of the normal screen I should be able to.

Been to websites to see what other people have done. Followed what they have done and well still no luck for me at all Smilie

Please I need some help.

Yes I know just upgrade the O/S but I can't due to the software that I need to run, it's custom software the company uses and in the later versions of RH they changed some settings and I don't have time to see what that is and fix it the software.


Thanks in advance for those who can help.
