redhat 7.2 and radeon 8500

i have looked at previous posts regarding this issue, printed most of them and i'm still clueless, after "successful" install my comp rebooted hurra! well not exactly, i was under impression that it would be a dual boot system, something went wrong, there is only redhat no windows ... there is a countdown it goes through some checklist (all green ok) than a ball buster, i can log in but i get fatal error 104 by now i know it's a problem with my video card (ati 8500) which i selected manualy (ati 8500 than 64 ...)
can't use my comp (no win) redhat wont work, i have no clue what i'm doing (wrong)

RH7.2 has no Radeon8500 support; you must install XFree4.2.0, after the installation of RH7.2.

If you have some problem during boot, is not a Radeon problem; Radeon problems are XServer problem, but it will appear after successful loading of the system.
I use Partition Magic to make partition for Linux, then during install process i select with DiskDruid the partitions i have created; i suggest to install in this way to mantain Windows partition withouth problems.
