SuSE 9 ATI Radeon 9600 Pro

Anyone here noticed if SuSE 9 comes with ATI Radeon 9600 series drivers physically on the upgrade disks? I've tried installing from SuSE's website (the drivers) for 8.2, and that was just a MESS. Since I'm planning on updating, I'd be interested to know if support is built in this time around (like they SAID it was in 8.2)

I wrote to SuSE and asked them, but the rep I talked to there wasn't sure...

9.0 detected my card, but picked up my monitor as a VESA compatible. I was able to get 1024x768 out of that, but after fixing my monitor selection, got it up to 1400x1050 no problem.

Unfortunately 3D acceleration is not working. I've tried the supplementary drivers from SuSE's FTP site, as well as the drivers downloaded directly from ATI. 2D works great, but all the 3D apps say that 3D is not enabled...
