Fullscreen Problem Solved

I figured out why I couldn't get Quake III Arena to run fullscreen in my new Red Hat 7.1 installation. When RH installed XFree86, it only defined one resolution. All I had to do was to edit the "Modes" subsection of the "Screen" section in my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and add "800x600" "640x480" after "1024x768". Problem solved. Every Linux distribution has its quirks, I guess I just need to get familiar with RH 7.1's.

RH 7.1 does seem to be snappier overall. My web browsing seems to be much faster, but I don't know if that is a function of RH 7.1 or the newer version of Mozilla than I had been using with Mandrake.
