ATI Mach64 graphics card and Xwindows

My PC has a ATI Mach64 graphics card. I can't get Xwindows to work because it says that there is no suitable driver for my graphics card to display in a decent resolution, anything above 640x480.

Where can I get hold of a driver for my card?

Make sure that you have run XF86config or XF86Setup (depending on your release of X). In 3.3 of X there is a Mach64 driver. Also make sure you select the correct monitor definition. Take the SVGA one (start with minimal config) - at least this will get you beyond 640x480. Unless you change the settings in /etc/XF86Config, 640x480 will be the default. You can change this, but test by Ctrl-ALt-+ (Ctrl, ALt and keypad plus key all pressed at the same time). This should rotate you through the video modes. Good luck.
