In that case, it's highly questionable if Xorg autodetection
magic will work here. Maybe "Xorg -configure" and manually
post-configuring xorg.conf is the way to go. Of course you
have to verify _which_ graphics is installed: Maybe it's
ATI, maybe Intel. Then you have to install the corresponsing
driver. In worst case, try the VESA driver, but don't expect
any 3D stuff working flawlessly with that.
