Usable Video Config for ATI Rage Fury 32 meg

I know drivers are under development and slated for release in spring of next year.  In the mean time is there any advice on a Configuration that will work.  My only choice at this time at the end of Installation seems to be Quit and Exit. I can boot to a Command Prompt but no GUI.  I am new to Linux so am not sure how this support system here works.  I already feel gipped as it stated I'd start out at 200 point and for some reason only have 75 total points.  It seems the Tech support server is down Temporarily.  I don't really want to uninstall my 32 meg AGP card from this system and install my old 4 meg AGP card to use linux on a dual boot system.

To install ATI Rage 128 Fury card, you should do:
Install XFree86 ver. 3.3.5 (Maybe you have it already)
NExt you should got to suse ftp server (ftp.suse.com, directory /pub/SuSE-Linux/suse_update)
You should download ati rage 128 drivers from subdirectory X/XFCom/xrage,
and xfsetup from subdirectory XFree86-3.3.5-SuSE/suse60.
You should istall all of them, next run XF86Setup.
It should help you.
