NO Screens Found Dell Inspiron 8000


I am a newbie and am using redhat for the first time. It is the only operating system that i have used other than windows so i am very unfamilliar with everything. I have redhad 9.0 after i install it, I get an error that sais, Fatal Server Error: No screens found. I have the ATI 128 Mobility vidio card.
