hi,i have an ati radeon 9000 pro,but the system detected it at the installation. didn't your system detected it as well?
i'm afraid you have installed an older version (if you have installed from ati website) 'cause they haven't developed new drivers since November 29, 2002
are you using latest mandrake distro?
