Question Riva TNT 2 - Debian (Woody) chipset problem

Hi there,

I've got a problem with my new installed Debian (Woody).
After downloading and installing all necessary XFree packages and all this KDE and Gnome Stuff and rebooting the system, the X server doesn't start.
I get the following error message :

(WW) VGA: Chipset "RIVATNT" in Device Section "Generic Video Card" isn't valid for this driver
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Does Debian needs another driver package or something like that. I'm really NOOB with Linux. Can anyone help?

My grafic card is :

RIVA TNT 2 Model 64
