Next time, it would be better to get a nvidia card.
Also note:: I don't have an ati card so I have no experience installing its drivers etc...Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

I am using an ati radeon x300 on my mandriva box and it works great! i have been doing so much tweaking with this new box i can't remember, but i believe i was offered the choice upon install of Mandriva 2006.0 and it has worked flawlessly.- Clouds don't crash - Bertrand Meyer

Athlon64 X2 3800 - 1G PC3200 - 250G SATA - ati radeon x300

Easy install, easy 3D, those ATI drivers are getting better and better.
This what I get out of my el-cheapo Radeon 9550:
