Configuring graphics card

I have a very similar problem with the ATI Radeon X1300. It's even
listed as a driver that works, it always fails and I need to go back
to the VESA. Same with my monitor - Dell 1907FP monitor - I  can
choose it from the list, but it always defaults back to plug and play.

I've just tried a reinstall last night of Hardy beta to try and fix
teh problem, and I wasn't even asked during the installation if I
wanted to choose! I was hoping it would all be better - i hadn't
reinstalled for a year and a half.
