Resetting video card


Hey guys,

I installed Red Hat 9 for the first time - all went well - everything was working great - I then fiddled with it and changed the probed card to what I thought it should been - it was probed as an S3 but it auctally was an ATI Reage Pro II

So I changed it to ATI and now all I get is a black screen - how do I reset it back to S3??

fanx
