XFree 4.3 and ATI 9700 pro

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find graphics drivers for the ati 9700 pro for XFree 4.3, if any. The drivers on ATI's site only support 4.2 and 4.1. I'm currently using redhat 9.0 with the default ati drivers installed.

So far, the performance in apps like TuxRacer is an disappointing 200fps .

Dude, if your'e getting 200 fps in Tuxracer WITHOUT Direct Rendering, then you don't need it lol.

But yes --

go to

click downloads,
and find the FireGL drivers for XFree86 4.3.

Those should do the trick for you
