Open source drivers?!?!?

I run 3D accel with my mobility 7500 in my Dell C640.
Of course, I use XFree86, not Xorg.

I would assume the open source driver would support 3D on the 9700. The only problem is that the framerates won't be optimized like with the proprietary drivers.

as far as i know there are no drivers for the 9700 mobility under FC 3....

i can only use the ones for 9600 mobility (M10) - but no 3D acceleration there...

ah, and how to change to XFree?
