I got it from the link that you will find in Johan Schuring's message.
I'm currently using Red Hat 9.0 (XFree86 4.3.0), and previously Red Hat
8.0 (Xfree86 4.2.0). I had to manually define the BusID in the
XF86Config-4 file from 1:0:1 to 1:0:0 to get it to work.
The XFree86 4.3.0 ATI 2.9.6 drivers under Red Hat 9.0 has artifact
issues with the new Alpha cursors, this is was not an issue under RH 8.0
running XFree86 4.2.0 with the ATI 2.9.6 drivers.
