Description of problem:
System-config-display detects my Readon 9600XT as a VESA card.
Since The X.org X server handles the card perfectly, ( If I choose the
"radeon" driver manually), the config utility should select the radeon
driver for this card.

I encountered the probelm during install (i.e the installer chose the
VESA driver, bt I presume that it also uses system-config-display

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 test

Actual Results:  X.org was using the VESA driver

Expected Results:  X.org should have used the radeon driver

Please confirm if the issue is still present with FC3T1 for detecting
your card.

Should be working in FC5.  Please reopen if this is still an issue for you after
