    Kiran,

    Your ATI Radeon 9250 has been removed from the mainline fglrx display drivers (as of 8.28.8). However, the open-source drivers should work great for that card. Thus the drivers are built-in to Fedora Core 6. Do you have a display yet? Otherwise, where are you loosing the display?

        It could possibly be something with detecting your EDID.

        What is the output of:

        cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE

              Have you tried uninstalling the fglrx driver and using the radeon driver?

                  AIGLX is not supported by the fglrx drivers at this time and should be disabled.
