can't find ATI video card driver


I have a HP xz 355 laptop. I can't find a driver for the video card, right now i have it set as a default flat panel and it works fine, except for 3d gaming, the z dimension doesn't work well. Anyway, i just want to know where i can find a driver for ATI mobility radeon 7500c.

P.S. Neither HP nor ATI has drivers for this device

As far as I know the only way to get the thing to work well is with the gatos drivers. The install is a little manual, and their page only mentions XFree86 4.2.0, but their download page has a set for XFree 4.3.0. Follow the instructions very very carefully and you should be okay.
