[Ma-linux] Changing video card in Suse 10.2

I bought a new mini-tix box which seems to have a built-in VESA framebuffer card.
The board itself uses a VIA CN700 chipset, and supposedly has a VIA/S3
Graphics Unichrome Pro IGP chip/?
When I login as root, opne Yast, go to hardware, and select graphics card and
monitor, I get a message saying that "The configuration is framebuffer based
and your system does not support changes for resolution and/or color changes".
Hey, this is ok with me, because what I want to do is try to see about
selecting a different card type, but I can't, as in I don't have any options
in this window to select another card.
So, I'm thinking that I need to boot into run level 3, and then run some "app"
to try and select another card for X.
Any ideas on what I would use?
