fedora 3 - now my display is crazy

Please note I have used Red Hat through Fedora 2 on this system, now I put Core 3 on it and BANG. The display is shot. If I drag the curser where windows are, then the windows display kinda.

The video card is a Intel 82810E and the monitor is a Nokia Multigraph 447 Za.

Any help u can give is priceless and appreciated.

What's the entirety of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, or if Fedora is still on XFree, XF86Config

got it fixed

By being able to just slightly make the "Red Hat Update" work, there was a kernel fix that made it stop being crazy.

Now I am loving linux again!
