My PC has two display cards, one is onboard ATI AGP 2x, other is S3 Trio64 (775/785).

It's make me can't start xwindows or start RedHat6.1 GUI installation.

Linux always detected the S3 display card, but the displaying monitor is using the ATI display card during the text mode installation.

Would you please help me to specify to use the ATI if I don't want to remove the S3 card?

Remove the S3 and run setup or Xconfigurator. After startx successed, insert the S3 and ignore the detection of S3.
