I'm considering buying a flat panel display for my home computer and the
Dell E172FP 17" LCD has caught my eye. Should I expect any gotchas in
trying to get it set up (using Red Hat 9 or Fedora Core 1), or will it
just work out of the box and easily get 1280x1024 with my Radeon 7500

that are certified to run RHEL3 WS, so my current line of thinking is
that it should work just fine.
Thanks for any help.
