Question Radeon card on Debian not working

Greetings fellow Linux users

First I would like to thank all that helped me to get this far.

Here is what I have

I have a video card: Radeon 9200SE ATI AGP 8x with 125 MB of DDram

now from what I Understand when installing and setting up x-window-system I select the ATI chip set I read the spec on windows and it said ATI so that is what i put on.

Here is the problem

It won’t work

Here are the last 2 lines on the screen that it gives after it does not run correctly

(WW) ATI: PCI/AGP Mach64 in slot 1:0:0 could not be detected!
(EE) No device detected.

Note: it did not ask me to select which slot the v card is n is in.

Also how do I change it if I need to after I have already installed the video card?

Thank you all
