X on a PowerEdge 6100

Most of the PowerEdges (at least the ones I have) use the ATI on board 
chipsets.  You should do fine choosing one of the ATI drivers, Like the 
RAGE PRO, etc.  If this is redhat it will most likely find it for you.  At 
the command prompt, as root, type the command setup.  There is an X 
Configurator available and it will walk you through it.  ATI is in there. 
Wish I could provide more help, but I run Debian.  :-)

Good Luck
