How to config. S3 ProSavage8


Hi
I just got my Mandrake 9.2 got installed. Now it goes to the text mode. I figured that my graphic card was not setup right..thus I went into config again and i choose my monitor (1280*1024 @ 60 hZ) and resolutio, but i cannot setup my graphic car.
Now I have emachine T2341
and it's using S3 diamond via km266 integrated ProSavage8 graphic card.
Now I don't know what to select in the drop down menu of the graphic card, cause it don't have the option of S3 ProSavage8...and if i am selecting something else....then while testing time it gives me

(EE) Error from xf86HandleConfigFile()
Try to change some parameters

let me know what i need to do..thanks for the time and help

FWIW, you might want to try this driver if you have any problems with your current setting:
