ATI Driver and Fedora Core 3


How do I enable 3D Hardware Accelerated Support in Fedora Core 3 with A Radeon 9800 PRO.
I downloaded the rpms off the ATI website but i dont know which one to use. I tried using the X.Org driver rpm and it ran and completed but no change was made and it my videocard was still disabled. Do i have to edit some conf files or something.
I read the FC3 FAQ and it didnt help much.
I am a complete newb, just installed FC3 yesterday and had very little experience beforehand but i wanted to try it out. I have FC3 on one HDD and winxp home on another. I hope to eventually switch completely to FC3 or some other distro, as windows pisses me off.
A step by step very dumbed down monkey see monkey do tutorial would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Download the latest one since you have FC3. Then you have to do "rpm -iv --force filename.rpm" then after that you have to run the config file for the driver to set it up which is "fglrxconfig" Make sure you have basic knowledge about your mointor and video card. Then reboot and it should work, if it doesn't, well I don't know!

Hope it works out for you!
