Question RH 7.1, CPQ PL 2000 & XFree86

I am doing my first install of linux ever and I think I chose a quite challenging machine to do it with. It is a Compaq Proliant 2000 (P90, 224MB RAM, 3x9.1 GB RAID5). I was not able to install RH 7.2 due to there is not a 7.2 version of the embedded SCSI controller driver. I am now trying to get Xwindows configured and am not able to get the video card recognized. I have tried generic settings to no effect. I have been told that the correct settings should be:

Cirrus Logic CL-GD5420, 512K, 1024x768x16 -

Since RH 7.1 comes with XFree86 4.0.3 does it have support for this card or do I have to downgrade to a previous version of XFree86 to implement the X-windows server?

If I have to downgrade, where is a how-to on downgrading a single component?
