Looks like you are trying to drive nVidia chip with ATI radeon driver.  
  Not going to work.  You need to edit xorg.conf and change driver in  
video card's device section (at least).  You probably need "nv"  
driver, if it's really nVidia chip you have.  You could also try  
running system-config-display, if you don't feel like editing files by
