XConfigurator working with ATI AGP Graphics Card

I have installed RedHat 6.0 on my PC which is dual booting with Windows.
Although the install is OK, I am having problems with the Video setup using XConfigurator.
My monitor is listed (AOC 7V Series) but have a problem with the graphics card. I have an ATI Rage 128 Xpert 16MB AGP 2X card.
Although there are a lot of ATI cards listed, none of them match my card exactly. I have tried using different ones without success. I have tried using "Unlisted card", "VGA16" and that hasn't worked either. Probing doesn't help either.
I would also like to know what resolutions I should select for 8-bit, 16-bit and 24-bit.
At the moment although Linux is installed I cannot "startx" and see anything!
Any help to complete this installation would be appreciated.

Currently, only SUSE distribution have the RAGE128 server. You can however download the server from them and use it with RH.
As far as I understand, oficially XFree doesn't
support RAGE128, but SUSE developing servers by themselves and the donate it to XFree or smth. So eventually it will soon be i other distributions as well, but for now you have to take it from there.
Hi, it's me again.
The server is here (look for RAGE128):

Then look for instalation tips:
The even have directions and new XF86Setup
program for non-SuSe users. The installation should be peace of cake, just follow their instructions.

Good luck
