I still don't think this is a problem with your video card...I really think there is something wrong with your XF86Config file.

Do you have any webspace where you could post a copy for us to look at? We need to see that file to help you.

try running /sbin/lspci it looks to me like it maybe looking for the video card in the wrong spot. look for an entry with something about ati or radeon

ok guys... I just edited XF86Config and still getting this error

(EE) RADEON (0): No Valid mode found for this DFP/LCD
(EE) Screen(s) found but none have usable configuration.

Fatal Server Error
No screens found.

Has anybody had this problem before? Should I re-install RH9??

I had a similar problem after playing with my config files. Except my monitor showed and 'out of range error' I simply reinstalled rh9,and this was an option because I hadn't installed a bunch of stuff yet. Sorry this isn't much help.

I like xf86config (some distros remove this, distros liek redhat and such usually remove the best stuff for proprietary)
