It is almost certainly due to miss-configured display card or monitor.
I would suggest upgrading your X-server at least if not your entire OS to RedHat 7.1.
If i'm not mistaken, 6.2 still uses x-3.3.5, and I don't think it had stable support for the 810 chipset yet.
X-4.x.x however does have full support for it.

PS, if you want to istall just the X server without upgrading the OS, you can take a look at my website at www.linuxhelp.co.za and follow the hot topics link, it is a bit outdated ( don't have time to keep it up to date ;( ), but the steps would be similar for the latest version of X...

Try increasing the resloutin 1200X11xx 8 bit mode
and also try changing horizotal and vertical sync frequencies.
