===============

I had downloaded the 3.2.4-beta also, but did not install it. I didn't
try the 8500 settings in sax2, but did a few others, which didn't work
well. Isn't the 9500 already supported fully in XFree86 4.3 though? I
thought I saw it listed there.

I ended up getting the 3.2.5 driver rpm from ATI, installed, built the
3D module for Mantel's latest kernel 2.4.21-64 and off I went. Well, I
still had to tinker a bit to fine tune things, but overall, it seems
ATI corrected some things in their latest. Very nice card (ATI 9200)
and 3D is outstanding with it.
