Linux setup problem. - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi. I have tried installing Mandrake Linux 9.1 on my machine at home, but I can't seem to get the video card to work. I have an ATI Radeon 7500 on an EMC monitor, and Linux installer can't detect a suitable mode for the display. Everything works just fine on my Win XP OS. The Linux installer runs XFree86 v4.3, and I think this one is most up to date. Any suggestions will be much appreciated? Thank you....

    This may assist you or at least point you in the right direction. Also,
    check the Mandrake Linux mailing list or online forums.
