after installation, no graphic environment works

I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 in a Dell CPx laptop. The graphic card is rage mobility m1 agp 2x.


Console mode works fine


But there is no graphic environment even if I selected KDE.


When I type kde it says, among other things:


using config file: "/etc/x11/xorg.conf"
Data incomplete in file "/etc/x11/xorg.conf"
At least one Device section is required.

(EE) Problem parsing the config file,

Fatl server error:
No screens found 

I think I forgot to configure the graphic section at the end of the Mandrake installation.


Can I come back to that "last" part of the installation so I avoid going through the whole installation process -more than 2 h-?


Alternatively, is there an easy way -I am a complete newbie- to reconfigure it from the console mode?


Thank you very much!
