Ok I installed RH 7.2 on a new(old) comp last night and when I set the Res on it it didnt accept it, it seems to have reverted to something like 640x480. That is way to small or is that big?!! Either case I spent hours last night going through all the settings I could find in KDE and GNOME but couldnt find a way to change that. Any ideas?

On the side now this comp only has 32mb memory am I going to need more to get it to run smoothly?

I think with RH you can open a terminal window (alt + ctrl + f2) sing in as root then run the configuration script "Xconfigurator" which will let you modify the Xconfig.

If you are going to run a window manager like KDE, etc. then more memory is better.

I think try this from the command line (in windows at the mo so I'm sorry I can't confirm this is right) - logged in as root

$> XConfigurator

Otherwise I think try:

$> XF86Config

I think XConfigurator will let you test resolutions and number of colours before accepting them.

Tip: start at the lowest, ugliest resolution and work your way up to the prettier resolutions and higher colours.
