I have an on-board Rage XL video chipset. I am installing RH9 and can only get 800 x 600 resolution. Can I obtain a linux driver for it? I don't see one on ATI's site.

Thanks in advance.

you can edit /etc/X11/XF86Config ,you'll find something like this:
you can change the parameters under this title according to you ATI Rage XL, maybe it has 8MB memory just like mine.
