Well I cannot speak about Mandrake but RHL9 is old and basically unsupported now. Red Hat ended support over a year and a half ago, and many third party support is no longer available. Choose something more modern, Fedora Core 4, CentOS-4.2, Mandriva Linux 2006 or any other supported version of Linux.

You can get almost any for the time it takes to download and create the installation media, or purchase for a small price.

From what I know there are no drivers for ATI x800xt with acceleration for now. Without acceleration it should work, through.
