Description of problem:
I have a Packard Bell 1010 monitor and a Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead video card.  Both worked well under Red Hat Linux 8.0 with the following settings: 800x600 display, 60 Hz refresh, and 16-bit color depth.  After installing Fedora Core 4 I now experience the following upon boot-up:
     - The Grub loader display is fine
     - The text display logging is fine
     - When the Fedora splash screen comes on however the display is ghosted.  That is everything that is displayed, text, icons, etc. are displayed multiple times with images overlayed, producing a severe ghosting effect and rendering text unreadable.  This effect continues after logging in.  I was able to verify (barely) that the display settings were correct (i.e. the same as before).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0.  This requires Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead video card & Packard Bell 1010 monitor.
1.  Boot Fedora Core 4
2.  Press <Esc> to enter Grub loader.  Observe clear display.  Select Fedora OS
3.  Observe clear text as startup progresses.
4.  Observe garbled/ghosted display when Fedora splash screen appears.

Actual Results:  Display is ghosted with unreadable text.

Expected Results:  Clear display.
