Virtual PC and Radeon 9500 Pro - not friendly at all

Hi all,

I have just installed a freshly squeezed Linux Mandrake guest OS on my virtual PC (on a winxp host) and I just can't get the right video card from the list...
I have an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro 128MB and every single card I have tried from the list has returned an error.


ATI Radeon
vesa (generic)
vga (generic)

I have even tried to reinstall the Kernell as mentionned in ATI's website in order to reinstall the drivers for the ATI video card.

Is there anyway that I could perhaps copy the file from VMWare that takes care of the video card configuration and copy it into my Virtual PC?? I mean, both are running Linux Mandrake 9.1

any ideas anyone??
