Red Hat Setup Screen Hashed - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I am trying to install a less robust 1998 version of Red Hat Linux on a 233 Mhz Pentium. Installs ok. Get on. Set up monitor I assume properly although have swapped monitors. the command line Red Hat Linux is fine but when I go to startX and it sets up I get a hashed screen. I assume that it is a setting somewhere that is wrong. what do I change to set things right ?...

    what do I change to set things right ?

    .... you can use the text-mode configuration utility for xfree
    called, 'xf86config', which i use exclusively to configure
    my xfree system(s). simply write down your mouse, keyboard,
    video card model, and monitor specifications (including the
    horizontal and vertical frequency ranges) and then run this
    utility. i find that it always gets xfree working

    In redhat you have Xconfigurator which is a nice tool for this job, if not
    installed on your system see the other suggestions.

    Sounds like you need to reconfigure your X-windows. What release of RedHat
    Linux is this? 5.something? There's no reason not to use RedHat 7.3, maybe
    even RedHat 9, unless you simply don't have the RAM and disk to support
    them. They have vastly more up-to-date versions of the XFree86 configuration
    tools, and are much easier to keep up-to-date with security patches.
