ATI 9200SE Bus Identifier??

I know this has been discussed here but I have tried to fix the problem and had no luck.
I installed from Debian 3.1 r0a i386 Bin-1 download

I can't seem to get the Bus Identifier right and when I change the screen res to include 1024x768 it doesn't show in the options.

If you're trying to increase the resolution to higher than Sarge default 800x600, try this code

# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

this should bring up a dialog that ask you about your video card, and monitor vertical and horizontal sync frequencies.
If your monitor sync frequencies are high enough you will have higher resolutions.

as for the bus identifier, if you video card is AGP , try PCI:1:0:0

hope this will solve your problem.
