You probably mean 'dmesg | grep drm'. You may need to add a few
lines to /etc/modules, probably "agp", "drm", and "radeon". If
after a reboot 'dmesg | egrep "agp|drm" ' then still gives no
output, post the output of 'lsmod'.

You mean you have installed a new video card after having installed
Edgy? Then it's indeed likely that a reinstall of Edgy will find
the card and automatically install the required drivers. But what's
the fun in that? :)
