Thanks for your replies.
I have gotten the Radeon card to work in non-accelerated mode, but the refresh rate is horrendous...I can see windows redrawn in chunks as I move them. It seems nobody knows how to setup that Radeon card as it is not one of their popular cards (32MB PCI); RHat doesn't even want any part of supporting it and I've tried every trick documented by XF86.
Looks like I will give the Voodoo3 a shot...seems it would work well for me and is dirt cheap. If it doesn't, then I am only out $20.
