Thanks a bunch. I'm going to install it and see if that works. I had orginally not seen the fact that it supported the 200m, but after reading the website better, it shows its supported. I appricate all the help (yes, i can't spell).

Check my website for a how to install guide for the ATI drivers. I drew it up specifically on SuSE 10 myself, hopefully it is a guide you will find useful.

The ATI install fails for laptops using this card. Has anyone found a way to get 3d Acceleration enabled for a laptop running this card?

I wasn't doing it from the right place in the terminal. I was doing as the super user under my home but i needed to do it as root. I got a friend of mine to help me with it.
