just hangin

I am new to the linux world .I am installing linux on a p2 350 w/8.6hd
128mgsram,ati all-in-wonder128 video
card w/16vram,15 inch avitron monitor(kds)with
108max dot clock,50-70Hor,40-120Vert
60hz at1280x1024,75hz at 1024x768.
 It seems like ive tried every combination with the configuration and im still having trouble.iv gone through the xf86config,and done the superprobe
but to noavail.i think i my need a patch for the kernal to support the card, but im new to the prompt type operation and im not quit sure how to install anything.if i could get the windows environment running im sure i could figure out the rest.
    any help would be greatly appreciated

forget xf86config, Try XF86Setup. This is easier.

Redhat can use the rpm too.  Otherwise, get the tar.gz version.
