I don't know about PC Linux OS, but you might need to compile the drivers directly from the ATI website. The free radeon drivers from linux don't support 3D, I believe.

Click on the Configure your computer icon (it has a spanner and a screwdriver as the icon), enter your root password then go to Hardware--> Configure 3d Desktop effects, select Full 3d desktop effects then click ok now follown the onscreen instructions.

Search here about the latest ATI drivers on the latest kernel tree. What it amounts to is dri and 3d does not work with the latest ATI on the 2.6.23 kernel branch. If you have both kernel 2.6.23 or greater and ATI 8.42.3 then this is the problem.You need to use kernel 2.6.22 or lower with 8.42.3 or use ATI 8.40.4 on 2.6.23 to get DRI to work.
