Question kde returns red background covering up dialogues

Ok, I have a iBook G3 800MHz with just Mandrake on it, it has a ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 video card in it and I've been tweaking the XF86Config-4 file for days now and it kde continues to refuse to work , I've currently got it to start up but the background is red, I can see and manuver the mouse pointer fine but I can't see the dialogues because they're covered up by the red background , I have tried using the settings from Gentoo live cd but no luck there either, I have tried using both the ati and fbdev as display drivers and both return the red background, I've also tried adding Option=UseFBDev and still no luck, how can I get kde to work successfuly? Any help is greatly appreciated.


P.S. Really sorry for double posting but I really need this problem solved asap, so please help I really will appreciate it
