    While I was setting up my laptop for Linux, it too has the ATI Rage
Pro LT, I stumbled across this page:
<A href="http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~steveh/inspiron/xserver.html">this

    This page has all the details for settino up the video.  That was
when I setup for RedHat 6.0.  However, when I setup the same machine
with RedHat 6.1 it found and setup the video card fine,  I didn't need
to mess with anything.  I hope this can get you through the setup, email
me if you have other problems.

<pats himself on the back>  Yaaah! first time I'm able to actually help
on a Linux listserve and not just lurk.
