	Maybe try upgrading gmc? I think gmc is the proggy that gives Gnome
its desktop icons.

	Ah ok,

	Maybe it is a problem with Gnome 1.0. I haven't used it in such a
	time (since I installed KDE 2)

	Try Gnome 1.4, or Kde

	It could also be an X4 driver problem, try X3.3.6. X4 is very new
and only
	really suports very new chipsets well.
