YMMV depending on your motherboard chipset...

What do you mean "YMMV depending on your motherboard chipset"?

Yesterday, I did try to install this driver on RH9, but I got followings:

I see you decided to do start a new a thread on the same subject(the other one is http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=93751).I think http://users.actrix.co.nz/michael/radeon9200.html will be able to help you.

Hi, arunshivananda,

Your suggestion is so great. I got my video card works.

Thanks a lot!

I'll figure out my sound card work next ...
