Question Will ATI Radeon 8500 XFree86 4.2 driver work with Xfree86 4.3?

Will ATI Radeon 8500 XFree86 4.2 driver (from their web sight) work with Xfree86 4.3 from the standard Mandrake 9.1 install. I need to do something 'cause my graphics performance is boll@#ks!!! I'm also a newbie and need help with any suggestions.
Thanks in advance

PS Can't wait to get it working right so I can install UT2003 and totally finish with Windows!!!
