Upgrading from on-board graphics

OK - so I have an older HP Pavillion a330n. This uses an Asus A7NBX-LA mainboard that has on-board graphics.

A friend gave me an ATI Radeon AGP card that I want to install. So, how do I do this without completely screwing the pooch? I upgraded the PSU to a 550w unit, so I know I have plenty of juice.

When I plug in the ATI card and connect the monitor, the machine fails to boot through. I have to pull the card and reboot to the on-board graphics to see anything.

What do I need to do, in order to do this right?
