A few pages on from that, you'll have to choose a product type. You should choose the Radeon drivers link, not the notebook drivers. The drivers you get are absolutely fine for a Mobility 9700 (I've got one myself).

What do you mean by that? Are you just seeing a completely blank screen? Or can you no longer log in to KDE / Gnome? Or something else?

So you've got a command prompt then. Try running 'startx' (without the quotes).

in the ATI site they asked my to run the Check.sh file and that to check my XFree86 version but after download the file i type in the command prompt:
sh check.sh

but i'm not able to get the result of my XFree86 version!!?

Ah, I see. SuSE 9.2 uses X.org, so you need to use this version of the RPM, not the XFree86 ones.

OK, did you run fglrxconfig as part of the install. Even if you did, it might be worth running it again, and selecting some conservative values for now.

That's all working properly I think. YaST doesn't really understand about the new drivers, so it thinks 3D acceleration is still unavailable. Frame rates around 2000 is what's reported for me as well.
