Video Card's bus identifier?

I'm not sure what to specify at this point -> "Please identify the video card's bus identifier" I have an ATI 9800Pro on the AGP. I tried just writing AGP but says incorrect format. What should I enter here? Thanks in advance.

Well, I just left that blank and hit enter. It must not have been a "bad" thing to do as I'm online using mozilla right now with my first linux install. But, I would like to know the answer still, as it prolly isn't the best thing to leave it blank. So, is "lspci" a command to enter at the command prompt? If so do I need to be in root user? Is there a way to go back and edit that entry? Also have another question.... I downloaded Synaptic using a tutorial I printed up, ut when I "mark for install" it just kicks back to the terminal window. That is initailly how i tried to install Mozilla. Instead I just used apt-get. Hehe, first hour up and running, I want to learn more. :]

(Stage 2) ie post install.
