Gnome not working in Redhat 7.2

Gnome doesn’t work in Redhat 7.2, but KDE works fine. When I try to login to Gnome the Gnome panel goes through its thing and then a blue screen appears for about five minutes. Then the desktop appears, but there’s no tasks bar or start button and the windows have no buttons to close or minimize them. The title bar is also not there so windows can not be moved either, and the only way to log out is to reboot. There is also no way to open applications that is not one of the three on the desktop, and they are Home, Start Here and Trash.

I think I have the problem sloved. The hard drive I installed Redhat on has been giving me trouble, so I tried another drive and everything seems to work ok.

Actually, I'm getting the same problem with the windows lacking any drag bar or buttons, only for me it also happens in KDE. However, it's intermittant -- after rebooting 2 or 3 times, the problem goes away, then immediately returns at the next reboot.

I can't imagine what the prob is, but I'll keep searching...
