Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I'm new to Linux and installed Redhat Linux 8.0 today. When I boot up into Gnome, the three icons at the top of the screen, I don't know for sure but this may be in Bluecurve, anyway they appear to be blurred and are difficult to read. (When I say blurred, it's as if for each icon there are layers of that icon).

This also occurs for any menus I try to bring up from the Gnome toolbar at the bottom. However if you highlight an item in the menu, it becomes clear, otherwise it is difficult to read.

I have installed it on a Compaq Deskpro 400Mhz Intel Celeron PC
It is using an AGP Matrox G100 graphic card (4MB)
I am using a Dell Monitor (I don't have the model number at the moment), it is set up at 800 x 600 resolution and 16 bit color. I don't know what the refresh is set at.

I didn't want to set it up with this monitor when I installed it, as I will be using a different monitor when I get it home. I was trying to set it up as a generic monitor, but it wouldn't let me during the install process.

Anyway, if you think you can help, I'd be very grateful.
