Sorry, but I went from a dog Radeon 9200 to a stellar GeForce FX5200.


funny, my Gigabyte 9200 works without fail or problems running games on w98 on vmware on 9.2

even better than w98 raw.

Maybe the 9800 is better -- but I do some high end gaming, and it's like night
and day...I would never recommend any ATI product to any Suse user after my
experience.

The other thing is I would definitely always stick only to hardware on the
Suse supported hardware database. I had a similar problem with an SB 24-bit
Live! All those problems were solved went I bought a $13 CMI based card.
