X isnt starting, video card setting problem


I have been trying to get a GUI to work on my new Redhat 7.2 installation, but I cant seem to pinpoint the right video card setting. I have an ATI Radeon 8500 based card (specifically, a Joytech Radeon 8500LE, 64 MB), but when I try any of the Radeon 8500 settings it wont work. I looked for Joytech card settings and there is only one for their 7200 model. Should the ATI setting be working assuming my monitor setting is correct (im quite sure it is)? If not, what can I do?

Take a look here, it's in German but I had no trouble to translate it into English.
P.S. Nevermind the german stuff the URL I gave is already translated into English
