See my reply to "stuck at redhat 9 login". If your monitor is over 3-4 years old or 15" or less you may want to drop down to 800x600 and hf 30-50 / vf 50-80 just to be on the safe side. You have enough ram but 400mhz seems kind of small for RH9 although RH says 300 mhz minimum. Might want to think along the lines of ordering a $1.98 copy of Vector Linux for that system. Still I wouldn't think Gnome in RH9 was any bigger power hog than Windbag Mille.
