look like your ACPI implementation is buggy, you might have to turn off ACPI in the kernel.
But on the other hand, RH 9.0 is pretty old (2 years old?) you better switch to Fedora (they use newer kernel) which is the continuation of RedHat. Maybe the new kernel handle better broken ACPI?

Hmmm well it's a good start, if ACPI is the problem you should be fine. However, I really think you should switch to Fedora, unless you plan to play 3d game, you have need the few more FPS you will get from ATI drivers, you could just stick with xorg default ati drivers and DRI.

hi

i configured the ati card in fedora but its freezing the gui.i can't start gui i used the default driver which available in fedora and also i downloaded some driver from ati website but i got the same problem.my user didn't give his machine for me.i think my restarting problem will solve if i am updating RHEL 3 WITH UPDATE 2.

or another wise give me some idea to install the ati card in fedora
