The problem may be with the support for the intel 82845G/GL video card,
running redhat-config-xfree86 gives errors about rendering disabled

There isn't such thing as "support for a monitor" really.  It is the video
card which is either supported or not supported.  The monitor is just a
dumb device more or less attached to the video card.  If your video card
is unsupported, then you wont get a working setup.

i845 video is unsupported currently.

Oh, one more thing...  If your monitor is not known to the monitor
database provided with Red Hat Linux, it will still work, as long as you
are using supported video hardware.  If you would like it added to the
database nonetheless, you can attach the Microsoft Windows .INF file for
your monitor to the bug report using the link below, and then reopen
the bug report and I'll add it to the database.  Note however that this
is just cosmetic, and makes it show up on the list of monitors.  The only
benefit of this is if you're using a video driver that does not support
DDC (on supported hardware).
