    Where to get/how to install ATI Rage II driver?

    Before I ask any question, I try to find the answer on the forums, and elsewhere on the web. Unfortunately I have not been so lucky with this one ...

    I've got an ATI Rage II card. I'm running Slackware 9.1 and X without problems using the default drivers (I think). Here's an excerpt of the /etc/X11/XF86Config file for the video card driver ...

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "VESA Framebuffer"
    Driver "vesa"
    #VideoRam 4096
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

    So as I understand, it's using a default vesa driver, unaccelerated, and I can't seem to achieve higher than 1024x768 resolution. Here are the video settings ...

    DefaultDepth 16
    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 16
    Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

    1. I'd like to know if there are drivers available for this card so that I can accelerate it.
    2. I'd like to be able to increase my resolution a bit.

    Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
