Can't install drivers on Win XP for my Radeon 9200 SE

Reported by: paziek Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0 Keywords: video driver ati radeon
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


Host is Hardy Heron. I have tried all kinds of drivers. Official, old, current, modified. Nothing seems to work. Is this normal, or its just my crappy video card? Perhaps I should set it up in my xorg.conf ?
Right now its just this:

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"

But X seems to detect my card properly

You don't install drivers for your graphics card in the guest (which is what I assume you are trying to do) - you install the guest additions, which contain a special graphics driver written for VirtualBox. See the  user manual and the  user FAQ.
