    not sure if it's got a driver, but you may want to check out Linuxprinting.org for drivers. That's where i found drivers for my 'non-linux' HP PSC-1205!

    The newest version of the ATI drivers aren't *that* bad. They have decent 3d acceleration, but don't expect to run something like Doom III on them.

    I'd also suggest the dri project. I've heard good things, but I can't use it with my AIW9600Pro.
