Try there, ATi have a tendency to have rpm driver packages that require a kernel recompile afterwards. So it's best to read the manual before trying the install :)

If I were you I'd lose that $50 ATI card pronto.

 

Radeons are a beeyotch to set up drivers for, b/c they have the worst Linux support on the planet.

 

An FX5200 works far better under *Nix, believe me.

Agreed. ATi are (AFAIK) the only company who won't allow 3rd party people to create unix drivers for them. So, with little commintment to unix at ATI, nothing really gets done for us.
