Which Linux distribution are you using ? Is it a 32 bits or 64 bits version ?"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

Hrm. I don't have a great deal of experience with ATI cards (I'm an NVIDIA man myself), but I'd check to make sure that you are using the correct driver version for your card.
Ah-ha! I think I know what it is, is that an ASUS A8N board by any chance? Even if it isn't, the ASUS boards require their own separate drivers to run properly. I ran into this on my NVIDIA system. You have to install the MB drivers, the chip set drivers (if you need them. My A8N-SLI Deluxe board has an NVIDIA chip set), then install the AMD CPU drivers (yes, there is such a thing as CPU drivers) then install the video card drivers/anything else.
By the way, I'm not certain if all of those have Linux builds.
