What do you mean "YMMV depending on your motherboard chipset"?

Yesterday, I did try to install this driver on RH9, but I got followings:

*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.

Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated

I see you decided to do start a new a thread on the same subject(the other one is http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=93751).I think http://users.actrix.co.nz/michael/radeon9200.html will be able to help you.
