Video Card


Greetings!


I installed RH 8.0, during installation, anaconda probed and found my video card to be VESA (generic). But it isnt, I have MSI motherboard and SiS chipset.

When I try to change the display to 1024xsomething..the X server is not starting.

So, how do i install the right video card driver ?
