Question How do i install a new video card?

I am running RH9 with a Radeon 7000. I now have a Radeon 8500 to install. Do I have to remove my current driver before installing new card, or do I just plug it in....

Looking for a step by step to this process. Thanks

I think they both use the same driver, so you can just change the card.
