I have one running here on Xandros. It's fine. I don't play games so I have no idea how the 3D acceleration is, though.

ATI support for Linux is pretty pathetic, have a look at the article on Linux answers re the Radeon 9600XT -

The 9800 is a good card, but if you haven't already bought one I'd go for NVidia
