ATI RADEON 7500 pci doesnt work with SUSE9.1 REDHAT9

I have tried installing linux a few times on my pc. I have a ECS K7som+ motherboard, AMD Duron1600 processor, 512mb ram, 60gb harddrive , ATI 7500 64mb pci graphics card. I have Suse9.1 installed and everytime i try to acceess any settings for display the monitor just turns off. On the first boot after the installation when it was cnofiguring the hardware it did the same thing. I also tried to install REDHAT 9.0 and i got through the installation without a problem and when it goes through the boot up sequence it goes through a list of things and when it seems to load the display it was doing the same thing as the SUSE . The only difference with the SUSE is i can get to the desktop and run everything jsut some things seem to be lagged like moving windows and the writing on certain programs is garbled and i cannot read it. It tells me to manaul set the X,Y size for my screen and jsut seems to shut the monitor off and nothing coms back on. I dont know alot about linux just wanted to start using it, so if anyone out there has anyideas of what could be going on it would be greatly appreciated.
