Question Activating TV Card


I am running Linux Redhat 8.0 on a Pentium I 150MHz with 32Mb ram. I am using a ATI All-in-Wonder Pro card. When installing Redhat it picked the card up as a ATI Mach64. It then gives you the option to select the right card. I then selected the ATI All-in-Wonder Pro.
When running xawtv I get the following message:
This is xawtv-3.74, running on Linux/i586 (2.4.18-14)
can't open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available

Any help will be appreciated. The card is working fine on Win98.
I am new to Linux.
