    Redhat 9 is a very old distrobution, have you tried a newer distro or a newer kernel that might have better support for the virtual PC video interface?

    execute 'system-config-display' command and configure display and resolutions. in case your Monitor is not listed in Monitors List, select 'Generic'.
