Description of problem: (I'm a newbie to this, so please forgive...)
Anyway, in reading Mike Harris' msg00862 dated 21 Oct 2003, he asked
that we post any graphic cards that are not supported here in bugzilla.

Currently, I have the ATI Mobility FIREGL T2 installed in my laptop,
and it was not one of the choices upon installation of the Fedora Core
2 Test 1 from the distro.  So, among other things I don't have up and
going yet, my laptop runs only in 2D with the provided generic driver.

I've run upd2date and have updated to XFree86-4.3.0-62 (and also have
tried many of the suggestions given for this card on the web,
including the Linux driver suggestions on the ATI web site) but with
no success. Please let me know if any other info is needed. Thanks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora core 2 test 1

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install distro
2. No selection for this card
3. Only 2D available
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I have an IBM ThinkPad T41p whose graphic card has:
VideoRam = 128 MB
GraphicsType = SXGA+
VideoRamType = DDR SDRAM
GraphicsBusInterface = AGP 4x

Can you configure X to use the 'radeon' driver by hand, and see if it
works?  If it doesn't work, can you please try the 'vesa' driver?

Please attach an X server log from an attempted startup, and
also the output of "lspci -vvn" and I can add the ata to our hardware

Thanks for reporting this!
