New Mandrake 10 issue / grpahics

I am attempting to install Mandrake 10 using connectix virtual pc ....

Everything goes fine except for a problem with the graphics congfiguration, it defaults to an S3 graphics card, however i have a ge force fx, and when i try to test the config of the ge force, its says there has been an error

if i select the S3

the S3 makes the windowed emulator box go very wide and the graphics are unreadable... although i can just make out the desktop icons behind the corruption

So i think i need to select another card

Does anyone have any ideas
