You should have gone w/ an Nvidia card if your going to use linux. Nvidia is better supported in linux, while ati is still new to linux. If you can get a radeon 9000 or lower you shouldnt have any problems. i think u need to use the generic radeon driver for your card, im not sure. you can select it when it asks you to configure your monitor on the first boot.
