Question Problem with GLX, ATI9000 and UT2003/4

I have a Salckware 9.1 with a Ati Radeon 9000 Alantis PRO. When I tried to install Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo I find an error message that explain that GLX didn't work. Afetr a Internet researh I understand thata UT2004 wants GLX working at 32 bits instead of 24 bits. prepared a patch for their video cards that allow GLX to use 32 bits. The problem is that I don't find a solution for my ATI. Can someone help me? Tanx,
Simone (sorr for my worste English)
