hmm

In your other topics you already had suggestions about RHEL 6 here is nice place for that. New xorg servers are so much better with auto-configuration etc.
But it is not big problem with old. All you have to do is to edit xorg.conf file for your needs:

(this link is outdated for modern distros, no need to edit that file at all, but for Red hat 5 should be OK).

If you can, try setting the display resolution higher.
