[CentOS] ATI Rage XL Driver for Centos 6.5

I did some additional googling and downgraded xorg, the Xorg0.log file 
looks promising and as far as I can tell as a newbie, the driver loads, 
recognizes the card (ATI 3D Rage XL) and the monitor but when booting 
the computer the display freezes with the bar at the bottom and the text 
Centos 6.5. It is possible, however, to log into the the system and it 
seems to work normally with the exception of the graphic display.

The last line of the Xorg.0.log file shows that the X server terminated 
successfully and closed the log file, it is not clear, however, to me 
why that happens.

Would anyone be able to look at the file if I upload it? It is 77K.

Thank you.
