I had similar minor screen black-outs with Mandrake 9.0 and RH 8.0 on a notebook. It was a little frustrating on Mandrake. Very minor on RH.

Don't know why it happened though. When I restarted it didnt come back for a while.

RH has been fine for the last couple of weeks.

Try update the latest errata from RHN and see whether the problem still exists?
