as far as i'm aware, it doesn't exist. they are slowly working on drivers for their cards tho', but for now you probably have to make do with linux's generic video driver(no opengl i'm afraid).

Well...ATI just sucks with drivers on Linux, even worse on Linux laptops, so all you really do is wait for them or for someone to make some other drivers

Or you could hack em up yourself

Well ATI don't make laptop drivers full stop according to ATI when I contacted them about my X600 mobility so I went to Dell and they gave me an upgraded bios driver that will allow ati's linux drivers to work. I just have to do it now.
