There are video card issues in two systems, x86_64 and i386. Details are as below:

Appreciate if somebody will confirm a spec of the two video cards which can work
fine in our OS and supported by the two motherboards. Thanks very much.

GeForce part might be related to bug 184006, which is closed and tracked
upstream (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6212 ). However,
everyone I see mention fedora only as other distributions seems to work

Please, file separate bugs for separate issues. Otherwise they're impossible to
This bug is for the Radeon X550 configuration in the initial report.
Please attach the output of 'lspci' and 'kudzu -p -c video', and the Xorg.0.log
file from the failed startup using the radeon driver.
Reporter, please attach the information requested in comment #1.

What X log do you get from attempting to start with the radeon driver?

That certainly looks like a successful X startup. So I'm a bit confused.

xorg.conf file of RHEL4-U4 system
RHEL4-U4 system support radeon driver to start X after graphic installtion.
X is clearly finding a video driver and starting successfully, so I'm calling
this not a bug.
