To adjust your resolution, chances are you will have to edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, go to your Monitor section, and under your default color depth take out the option for "1024x768" so it should have only "800x600" "640x480". If you can't find that section, just scroll down through the file until you see the different resolution settings and take out all the 1024x768 settings.

Under redhat, your mounts should be set up for you already. Pop in a cd, and type the command in console (or xterm) "mount /mnt/cdrom" or "mount /mnt/floppy". I believe that Redhat may also include icons on your desktop for the cdrom and floppy that will allow you to mount and unmount. Before you can take the cdrom or floppy back out of the drive, you need to unmount first with "umount /mnt/floppy" and "umount /mnt/cdrom" (yes, that's umount not unmount).

There should be a package for Redhat called "unzip", do a search on for it. To install RPM's just issue the command (as root user) "rpm -Uvh filename.rpm".

Anything else?
