Please bear in mind that I am still new to all of this... How do I determine which video card I have in my Packard Bell Pulsar C300..

It looks like you have an ATI Rage Pro Turbo.

If you download and run click here it will be listed under "Display".

Download one or both of the above - and they will tell you all you might want to know about your system (and probably lots you don't want to know too!).

So it looks like I have the "ATI Rage Pro Turbo".. I have been told that I should install the latest driver version for it and I have the site click here for it, but am unsure how to procede especially with the "The video ROM can only be updated from DOS mode. It cannot be updated from a Windows DOS session" part.

You need a Display driver from here click here not a video ROM. Installing the Video Rom is known as "Flashing" and is not recomended for the novice, as it can easily ruin the graphics card.

The link you posted is for Compaq deskpro systems . Do not try to use it under any circumstances.

nightporter has the correct way to go - but have you actually checked your adapter model/type with one of the download - better to be doubly safe than sorry.

I went to the link provided by nightporter and used it to look for the video card that i have installed which is the "ATI 3D ragepro (english) (directX). For windows 98 (my operating system)it says to use the operating system driver. So I take it I have no more to do!!

You're correct - no more to do.
