Help links illegible -- RH Enterprise Linux v3

We have recently installed RedHat Enterprise Linux Workstation v3 on 2 systems, both Pentiums. One runs native, the other runs under VMWare 4.5.1 under Windows XP Pro. Both have the text of links in help (Yelp) pages displayed as bright green text on white background, which is all but illegible. If another window covers and then exposes the links or they are scrolled off the visible area then back on, they briefly switch to blue (legible) but they tend to switch back soon after. The only setting I can find that seems relevant is the color setting for links in Mozilla, but that seems to have no effect on links in help pages. This happens for both the main Help accessed from the main menu and for the help offered by various applications including Glade and others.

I have tried every theme offered under preferences to no avail.

I have googled both the Web and Groups with search strings such as

"green text" "white background" linux

as well as Red Hat's own FAQ, etc., and to no avail.

Had the same problem myself, with Debian and VMWare 4.0.

(green links in Mozilla / Firefox)

Here's the fix:

Make sure that you're using the right version of the vmware_drv.o.
