Unhappy 3d prophet hercules 4500 video card problems with Red Hat 7.2 installation

Hi everybody!
This is my first post here and I am a linux newbie.
I'm installing Red Hat 7.2 but during "X configuration" my video card (3d prophet hercules 4500 64Mb TV-OUT) doesn't appear in the list of video cards to choose from.
What should I do?
I suppose I can choose another card, but which one in the list (Hercules or not) is similar to my video card?

At this moment I cannot start X System (at the end of installation).

I don't use Linux for games nor for 3D applications. So I would be very happy even if I could only start X System at 1024x768 with 256 colors.

Thank you very much in advance!!!

That hercules card of yours is based on kyro II chipset, right? Unfortunatelly, there is no support for this chipset as of yet, so you may try a generic VGA os SVGA adapter setting, it might help, but I am not sure if you'd be able to use higher resolutions with such settings.
