Unhappy Radeon8500LE Drivers?


Is there any ATI Radeon8500 drivers for Slackware 9? I went to www.ati.com and looked at their drivers and I dunno if thats what I need? Can someone help or give me a link to download these drivers? How will I install them also?
I have a "windows" modem that I would like to use with Slackware this is the modem I have http://compusaveinc.safeshopper.com/11/373.htm?465 Now where can I get drivers for this too? And how will I install this also!
Thanks!

I run Slack9 with the same video card, and I use the drivers found at http://dri.sourceforge.net/

Hopefully this is helpful.
