Red Hat 9 is pretty behind as far as hardware recognition so you may be better off with Fedora Core which has Version 4 now.

Alternative you can edit /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 or /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the video driver. The choices of drivers can be seen in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers directory. The line you need to look at is the "driver" under the Section "Device".

It is generally quicker to install a recent distro than trying to persuade with an old Linux to work with the modern hardware.
