      Hi,

      I installed RH 9 on my I8K with ATI M4 without issue.
      I'll paste the monitor/screen sections of my XF86config-4 below. You
      might try changing your refresh rates. The ones below are courtesy of

      They have worked great for me with a 16 Mb ATI card and 1400X lcd.


      Hope that helps,

      Kevin
