OpenSolaris on DELL Dimension E520 Cannot see the display on screen

I am trying to install OpenSolaris on Dell Dimension E520, the display is distorted. I cannot see the images.

Vedio Device: Vedio Card ATI Radeon X1300 Pro 256MB DVI/VGA output with 1xS-Video.

Will Open Solaris support this Vedio Device? do i need to change the vedio device?

Please can you help.

You should also have onboard Intel X3000 GMA which works perfectly with OpenSolaris, I had one for some time, just plug you monitor into the integrated graphics.
