Description of problem:
My graphic card, a Gigabyte GV-R96128D (based on Radeon 9600 chip) is
not recognized by the system, neither during installation process, nor
when using the 'display' menu.

I have tried to select the 9600 driver manuely, but it is reset to
'generic VESA driver' when rebooting.
Selecting the 'ati radeon generic' doesn't make a better result.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the 'display' settings.
2.Select the radeon 9600 driver

Actual Results:  The generic vesa driver is still used.

Expected Results:  The radeon 9600 driver shoud be loaded.

Additional info:

Motherboard : KG7 (north bridge : AMD761)
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-01 16:00:11 EDT
Fixed in rawhide hwdata for many ATI radeon hardware.  If yours
still doesn't work with rawhide hwdata, reopen bug and attach
output of "lspci -vvn".

Setting status to "RAWHIDE"
