Sorry for the late response but I just found this.  I hope you have found 
something more positive than I have but I went the ATI route and found out 
that ATI themselves will not support Linux.  They don't even make it easy for 
someone else to write drivers.

Linux is a pain in dealing with installing stuff outside of the normal 
installers like YaST on SuSE.

I have had horrible pain in installing a software product and it's many 
non-included libraries only to find out the libraries it recommended getting 
were older than what I had.  I found this out too late.  I had a terrible 
time recovering from that.  Linux is not for the faint at heart but the 
absolute best gaming platform when compared to Windoze.  Quake 4 takes 3 
minutes to initially load on Windows and 1 minute on Linux.

Best of luck to you.  I hope you defy my negative feedback and win this bloody 
war.  :-)
