Adding a new graphics card and Fedora 10?

I have two machines that have Intel Integrated Graphics both of which don't
work entirely satisfactorily with F10.
One is a Dell Dimension 2400 with 82845 graphics, and the other is a Dell
5150 with 82945 graphics.
Both are dual boot with XP.

I am intending to install a new graphics card in both machines - PCI-e in
the 5150 and a PCI card in the 2400.

Can anyone offer any advice as to the procedure to install the cards to
minimise the chances of problems.  I know that for the 2400 I need to check
that in the BIOS there is "auto" selection of graphics before installing the
new card - and then use the relevant drivers for XP - but when I then boot
to F10 will there be a need to do anything special or will the system
recognise that a new card in now in place with the only monitor attached to
the new graphics card?

In the case of the 5150 I presume a similar procedure is needed - but again
when I boot to F10 once the new card is in place and the monitor plugged
into to will F10 boot up and recognise it?  Or are there some special
preparatory steps needed before booting up (and afterwards) ?
