Question FC4 test: VGA chipset misdetection

FC4 test ISO has been detecting my ATIMach VGA chipset as CDOMHE something, now
KDE/GNOME finds it hard to be displayed in X mode.

I finally get into the X when I chose Last Session option during login prompt ,
choosing GNOME/KDE wont bring me to X, and does not shows any error as well.
I have to go to terminal mode and kill X to restart it back to login prompt. And whenever
I chose Last Session option, I onlu got 800/640 resolution maximum.

During boot, it shows the my VGA chipset is non ATIMach64 but CDOMHE something chipsets.

FC1/FC2/FC3 detects my chipsets right as ATIMach64 and display GNOME/KDE X correctly.
Hope this will be included in the final release modification.

Additional server info.
Compaq Proliant DL360 G2 series, 512 MB, 2 SCSI, 1MB swap
ATI Mach64 VGA chipset, Compaq TFT5015 monitor

for additional info.
While FC3 detected my VGA chipsets correctly, I tried upgrading FC3 to FC4 from CD, it detects the chipset as CDOHME and KDE/GNOME X wont start and show anything fom screen. I need to force to terminal mode and kill X so I can get back to login prompt to choose which sessions from list.

I tried fresh install of FC4 test, the same VGA chipsets misdetection is showing.

wish to include it with FC4 final as all my linux servers have the same chipsets.

im sorry, i have to correct myself.

FC4 test release detected my chipset as

Serverworks CNB20HE

and not as ATI Mach64 ...

takes like 30 to 45 minutes to load GNOME/KDE X in Last Session mode when logging in.

hope this can still be included to final FC4 final
