Unhappy Fedora Core 3 display problems


Hi Everyone,
I am a total noob. Touched Linux for the first time yesterday when I got Fedora COre 3 on four CDs and loaded it (not dual-boot) on a second-hand computer I bought just for the purpose of playing with Linux.
The system has a 10Gb HDD, CD-R, floppy drive, 196Mb of Ram (don't ask!), a sound card, on-board graphics and I had absolutely no problems loading the Personal Desktop version of Fedora Core 3. I am really happy with how fast it is too - lightening quick!
However (and it's a big one): I am having trouble with the display. I'll use the game ROBOTS as an example: when I open the game and try to move my character, I see the character in the new position, animated, with an inanimate version in the previous position. This happens over and over until there are hundreds on the screen. Similarly, when I open the text editor, I don't get a nice white page surrounded by text editing icons, but rather I get a window frame, inside of which is the same picture on my desktop - ie: the white page isn't showing, unless I type something and then highlight where I think it is, in which case it does show up.
I am using a StudioWorks 700s monitor and don't understand what the problem is because the desktop shows up beautifully when I start it up, and the splashscreen is gorgeous.
I have tried altering the resolution and number of colours to no effect.
ANY help would be appreciated!
THanks,
Jay

Umm... yes and no. Yes, when I roll the mouse over a window (the display settings window for instance) drop-down menus and buttons appear, but text doesn't and 'inanimate' objects don't appear (tabs don't appear, for instance).
If it helps, I'm using a Celeron II 400Mhz.
Thanks!
