Help - Problem with XFree86 config of a ATI Mach 64

I need help with this (I'm new to Linux).

I'm trying to config (xconf) the video card and monitor. The setup can't
probe my card, so I get an error after running through the config when I
try to start (startx).

Here is what I know of the card and monitor and what options I selected
in the config:

Card:
Chipset= ATI with a Mach64 chip (210888GX00)
Bios= PCI MACH64 113-25420-100
RAMDAC= ATT PrecisionDAC ATT20C408-13
Clock= ??? (Maybe this chip: PALCE 16V8H-7JC/5 9450DBA B)
Memory= ???(I have 16 chips identified 9518 V53C104DK60) My guess is
2Meg

Monitor:
ViewSonic 15
Size  Dot Pitch  Max NI Res  Hor Scan kHz  Vert Scan Hz  Bandwidth MHz
Flat Scree
15    0.27       1280x1024   30-64         50-90         86            
Yes

So the setup is easy enough, except for the fact that it can't probe the
clock. (therefore wont start...)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
