Generally, FOSS drivers are automatically included with the X-server. Non-FOSS drivers (and other "restricted" applications) for Fedora may be found in the rpm-fusion repositories. (Google rpm-fusion for info.)

If "Sulphur" has not yet been released you may need to look in the "development" or "testing" versions of the repositories.

I think that ATI may have a "compile an install" script on their site that you could use to build your owne driver.

Welcome to LQ.

Red Hat's Fedora (Sulphur) 9 Released"

Please click this line on the site :
' RPM Fusion free for Fedora 8, 9 or 10 '
' RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora 8, 9 or 10 '

to download 2 small packages with repositories,
install them with # rpm -Uvh <package>
and the repositories will be set up automatically in /etc/yum.repos.d

( Or use " Command Line Setup using rpm " )
