having Minor problems with redhat 8.0

I have a:
Pentium 4 processor
D850mv motherboard
256mb ram
geforce2mx400 64mb
built in soundmax soundcard.

I have just installed redhat 8.0.
1)A funny thing happend while selecting wallpaper. When I clicked the browse button in kde and started selecting wallpaper I could see the file names. then I changed the desktop to gnome and when went back to kde while selecting wallpaper I couldnt see the file names in the browser at all. What is this about.

2)In the control center in configuring kernel tab, I made a change as my processor type was selected as pentium 3 as it is pentium4 so I changed it and at applying was prompted by a message saying "you just have to run make symlinks dep". I guess this has something to do with recompling the kernel, so I gave this command at the command prompt but it gave an error and stopped. So what do I have to do to configure the kernel through this control center?

The interface in 8.0 is not good at all it is not simple but seems dumb, as there is more functionality and less icons and shortcuts to show this. Similarly the xmms bug as it cannot play mp3 properly should have been mentioned, as we only have to download a plugin for that and it only adds to a frustration.
