When I installs the Red Hat Linux 6.2 in graphic mode the colors get all 
mixed up, and the screen starts to flimmer when I've reached the 
configuration of X. I guess it's something bad with your support of my 
videocard Ati Rage 128 GL AGP or something when running a graphical 
installation. The thing is that everything works perfect when installing 
in text mode. The same thing happend when I tried to install Red Hat Beta 
7.0 (pinstripe) in graphical mode, but it worked fine in text mode, even 
though I didn't get trough the whole installation because of the encounter 
of another bug. I've sent a bug report to the pinstripe section regarding 

Good luck in developing Red Hat 7.0 Final :)

Did you try 7.0 final? I know we had changes for ATI Rage128 chips...

This video adaptor appears to work fine in the latest release of
Red Hat Linux 7.2.  Closing bug as fixed in current release.
