OK, so here is the problem. I finally got the new ati drivers installed and working except for the fact that I can't enable hardware acceleration. Sax2 doesn't allow you to mess with the 3D configuration. I read on the readme from SuSE's ftp were i downloaded the drivers and that you need to configure a file (I think it was named xfree86config) and add a line "Load "dri"" on the modules section. Well thats easy enough so I tried it but alas I didn't have permission to change the file. My question is how do i get permission to alter the file so that I can have 3D acceleration and to also have tv-out support? I just installed linux for the first time just a couple of days ago and so far I like it. I would like to learn more about so that one day and totally get read of windows but if I can't get 3D acceleration working that will never happen. Thanks in advance for all the help.
Ok, well I got the drivers working, thanks for all the help. I was also wondering if you can enable clone mode with the theater option. I love this option in windows and it would make linux the sh*t if I could get this option set. Thanks again.

I face the same challenge, I need to installed 3D accelerated graphics for an ATI X800, using the X86_64 distro. Please can you advise which drivers you used and if you have any helpful tips they would be appreciated.
