ATI IGP 320M acceleration


I've just bought a new notebook: eMachines 5310M with an ATI IGP 320M chip. I tried to install RedHat 9 on it... after install, X wouldn't load... after disabling hardware acceleration in XF86Config it would load though... does anyone know if it's possible to get acceleration running for this card on Linux?

Redhat 9.0 doesn't have the drivers for this. But you can get it to work if you during the install, you select the vesa video driver. It's the only one that will work.
