    ati support is nowhere near nvidia (although nvidia needs to catch up to its FX cards) but it is getting better.

    have you tried the gatos drivers?

    Certainly not. There are drivers, but there not even a tenth as good as nVidia's drivers. Many don't even get them to work for 3D at all.

    My Red Hat 9 had no problem configuring it.
    I'm running my system with a Radeon 7000 great.
    I didn't installed it mannualy though. Red Hat 9 instalation found it for me .
