Problems Recognizing PCI Radeon

I am having difficulty getting red aht installed on my system. It's a Dell that has a motherboard with an Integrated Intel AGP graphics chipset which bites performance wise. I bought an ATI radeon 7000 PCI video card (As my Proprietary Dell POS motherboard has no AGP slot) with 64 MB of DDR RAM. I can't get X to work right for anything. I set it up as an ATI radeon 7000 series with 64MB of RAM in Anaconda and test it and it test's OK in setup mode in the configuration I specify. Once I finish installing and boot the system, everythign is fine till X comes up, then all I get is garbage on the screen. I just have this suspicion it has somehting to do with that integrated AGP chipset on my MB. Is ther somthing I have to do to tell it to ignore the onboard AGP? I already disabled it in the MB Bios. I'm trying to replace WinXP with Linux and this is standing in my way so any help would be appreciated.
