Ambiguity -- Need clarification


I've been following a comprehensive guide on updating my ATI driver along with my Kernel.

For reference, here is the link: http://www.rage3d.com/content/articles/atilinuxhowto/


It says that after I install my driver, I should make sure it boots up when bootloader starts by adding the following:

"install fglrx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install fglrx && { /sbin/modprobe via-agp; /bin/true; } #change via-agp to your chipset agp driver" (--Linked Above)

When it says "change via-agp to your chipset agp driver", what do I put? I'm installing a FGLRX 4.3.0 for my ATI 9600XT on my Intel 875 chipset.....which one do I use?

9.1 Where to get the driver

You can either download them from www.ati.com (and in that case follow the RedHat guide), or use RPMDrake/urpmi to get them. Note that you can only get the drivers via urpmi if you are a paying Mandrake Club Member.

9.2 Steps to take before installing the drivers

The only step to take before the installation is to make sure you have the kernel sources installed. You can get them by using RPMDrake.

9.3 Installing the drivers

Use RPMDrake to download the drivers. They will get configured automatically. You only have to run fglrxconfig to configure X Windows.
