    hi guys!

    i have RH8 installed and it places my computer screen a bit to the right. in other words "It's not at the center"

    i tried moving the screen using the adjustments in my monitor panel and it solved the problem temporarily

    but then i switched to XP, it is now XP that has an "un-centered" screen.

    can anyone tell me how to solve this? tnx

    Are you using a different refresh rate or resolution in RedHat compared to XP ?

    I use Mandrake Linux 9.1, and in the main Mandrake Configuration Panel there is the option to adjust the screen.
    I imagine there must be an equivalent in Redhat, and I suggest you try and duplicate the resolution that XP is using.

    This has to do with how the gfx card gets sent its info as well. But if you use the same res, same refresh rates it shouldnt move.
