Aha. You'll need to provide a driver for the card after install.

But I'm still not sure why the installer didn't have some sort of VGA driver to drive the card and thus the monitor.

Sounds like the card is DRT.

Still think I screwed up though and selected the wrong space to install win-7 on,
It showed 2 dish 0's one with about 29 gigs and another with 200.. gigs
I'm installing on the 200+ gig space :/

If you want to keep what you have then just install Partition Wizard
Right click on C to Extend, borrow all but 200mb from the left hand partition to leave it as an unlettered System Resrved partition.
Size doesn't have to be exact.
