9.0 small video problem

I am having difficulty getting video to play smoothly on a 9.0 box which is actually my brides dual boot Win2K/SuSE 9.0 system. DVDs play crisply and smoothly on the windows side but are very jerky on the SuSE side, as if there is file buffering taking place like load, run, load next, run next, and so forth. I doubt that it is hardware related as the problem is absent, as I mentioned, on the windows side.

Box is a P-4 1.8 GHz Intel chip, ATI Radeon 7500 RAGE 128 ULTRA card with 64MB RAM, and Princeton Graphics VL173 flat panel display driven at 1280 x 1024 16 bit, 3D acceleration disabled, ( 60 Hz) [31-80KHz // 56 -75Hz].

SuSE shows the monitor as a VESA (no Princeton VL173 options available) and identifies it as ATI RV200QW (Radeon).

I'm wondering if the RV200QW selection is the problem? Any advice on getting this thing working properly greatly appreciated.

xine doesn't want to play so I'm using gMplayer.
