please help its really fustrating me.. i'm a newbie and really wanted to give it a go through VMware before partitioning ect ect.

i have redhat successfully running on another pc (without VMware) but the pc is way to slow to really do anything..

i've read heaps of books but can't find anything..

Got it

i searched frantically for a config file, or something, and stumbled across
redhat-config-packages

but i did
redhat-config-xFree86
or whatever it was..

and it loaded me up into the gui, i selected my resolution and we're rocking!
