Hi,
I try to install a RedHat 5.1 in my PC. However, my VGA card(Diamond Fire 1000 Pro) is not in the list when asked to choose one for the X Windows. I wonder if anything I can do in this case. Is there any Driver that I can use for this version of Linux?

Anyone know if XFree86 support Diamond Fire 1000 Pro? If so, which chip set I should select for it?

I'll enter this as a comment, because I don't have that particular hardware to test, but I don't think it is supported directly by XFree86.  If you are interested in buying a driver, however, check http://www.xinside.com for their $99 X server.  It will support the Fire GL 1000 Pro in accelerated modes.
You can download a 10-minute demo from their site to see if it works as advertised.
