I just install Redhat Linux 7, I am using the same cd from my friend, and he is able to run the window like, but I can't.  My friend is also new to Linux like me, so no help is available from him.  Could someone tell me where can I run the KDE file?  I know on SUN it is called OPENWIN, and I can allocate where the file, but I don't know what it is called in Linux and where it locates.  Already try to look in bin directory, but don't know which one
Help please !!!

Hi.
Confused question no doubt. Anyway, you should find out what Graphics-card you use, what monitor you have and then you should run a program called "Xconfigurator".
I'm not exactly sure where you can find this on RedHat but you should find it rather quick with this command:
find / -name Xconfigurator -print

Then execute this file /path/to/Xconfigurator and set your Graphics-card and monitor there.

Good luck.
