I have a Radeon 9500 and I have never been able to run
it under anything other than the generic vesa vga
driver. ATI do provide binary drivers, but they are
rpm only and I got insurmountable dependency problems
when I tried installing it on an rpm distro (Mandrake
I think), though a quick check on their site indicates
they have put up new drivers only days ago.

Would it hurt them to make debs?
