ATI 9000, text display is terrible!!

Just built a new RH9 system with Dell PowerEdge 400sc. Get rid of the original PCI video card and using an ATI radeon 9000AGP. Problem now is the text is clear and sharp only in full screen. When it is not in full screen, the text is fluffy. It is more clear with bigger screen untill full screen. Monitor is MITSUBISH Diamond Pro 930sb, should be a very good CRT. 1280x1024 at 85 Hz. I just use the driver coming with RH9. I used to install driver from ATI. The XWindow died after restart, just as mentioned several times by other people here. So I reistall RH9 and didn't install drivers from ATI.

It is very painful now while working in shell for the fluffy text.
