      I have not had that problem at all and I have a dual boot between RH7.0
      and Windows 2000 Pro. However, periodically when I go to reboot or
      shutdown my screen fades to weird colors and will usually have one thick
      black stripe down a side and that's it, no more visual!!

          Hi Joy and others of same feather,
          I am flying with u on this one.. I am a recent convertee into the
          penguin community.. I tried rh 7.0 on DELL INSPIRON 5000e with 15"
          SXGA(ATI Rage mobility 128 AGP 2x acceleration chipset) and instead
          of a theoretically possible(for me, others like Jeff Lessem
          (http://ibgwww.colorado.edu/~lessem/5000e/ and links therein) have
          done it. I am not hardware savvy like those guys, my knowledge is
          pretty limited) 1600x1200 res, I got by default
          Default mode "1024x768": 108.0 MHz, 60.1 kHz, 76.6 Hz.
          Now, I have read from Scott & Jeff's pages that they used CVS 4.0.1c
          but redhat 7.0 has 4.0.1a. I don't know if this might be causing the
          problem. I am checking different modelines, in /etc/X11/XF86Config
          file. I should also mention the fact that I have installed Mandrake
          beta before ont his one (7.2b) and I got x working with the driver
          from Jeff's page, though it still gave problems with games liek
          GLTRON in MANDRAKE. It made screen go haywire and it was awful. I
          deleted mandrake 7.2b because I had other difficulties with it..
          which needn'tbe mentioned here. So if you do from the linux prompt

          #startx 1> x.err 2>x.log

          you can generate an error message tho other log message will be
          empty. I see the problem in that file, where the GNOME desktop panel
          starts blinking, so my *UN* educated guess WAS it's gotta be
          modelines.. tho I tried it in display and screen subsections it
          didn't change anything. ANother thing I am doubting is the VERTICAL
          and HORIZONTAL SYNC RATES(tho as a physicist it confuses me as to why
          refresh rates are mentioned for LCD(for CRT ok!!)?? So check your
          sync rates(I checked DELL webpage for exact specs, not much help
          there). I have tried copying just the XFree86Config file from the
          website mentioned, didn't work for me, so I assume maybe a latest CVS
          download of X 4.0.1c from www.XFree86.org is needed and compiled?
          Many options, let's try!
          I have appended my x.err for you to have a look at and maybe compare
          with yours(I should also mention that I had copied old XF86Config and
          changed modelines to 1600x1200, didn't work(didn't change H&V Sync
          Rates). So this is after modifying but as you can see it didn't do
          anything.. Hope this helps. It's a bit long, SORRY! Goodluck &
          Happy LiNuXiNg :-)
          raj
          ps: It seems to be using XF86Config-4, I am checking it right now!
          so long!
