There's a comment saying that Fedora runs fine with it. I've seen
other posts suggesting that they had problems, so ... I can't comment
on your version of linux because I've never heard of the distro.

As for the radeon - If you want just good performance it should
work fine with the stock radeon driver from xorg; if you need the
ultimate FPS try the ATI drivers. Personally I'd go with NVidia-
cards at the moment ;}



Cheers,
Tink
