Dell XPS, Graphics and Sound Card Compatibility

Yesterday I purchased "Deluxe Linux Operating System 6.5"
and after installation the sound card, monitor and the graphics card are not recognised
by the system.

My Dell has the following hardware:
17" M780 Dell Monitor,
32MB NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Graphics Card,
Yamaha XG 64 V Wavetable Sound Card.

Can this be fixed?  The graphics I am running with is in a reduced (and pityful!) mode and if this can at least be fixed, then I will have a usable system.

I would appreciate a timely response.
Many thanks!

Neither the TNT2 or the Yamaha is supported. www.nvidia.com has beta drivers for the tnt2 that are recommended for developers only.
