try xf86setup, if xou cannot find a similar template there, you may choose "custom installtion" for the card and/or monitor.

what you need to do is download the XBF-i740-glibc-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm  its on redhat's ftp site
than read the readme that comes with it.  and run Xconfigurator  chose  unlisted card and use the XSVGA xserver.  

if that fails after using xf86config type
ln -sf /etc/X11/X (  whatever the installed file name is)
I'm not sure what the name of the installed file is.
