Hi there, a while back I started making the switch to Linux. I spent quite a while to get 3d accel. working on my ATI AIW 9800 Pro card, but finally manged to get things to work. Too bad I hadn't seen your document then, or I would have been able to avoid the struggle.

In any case, I can play America's Army and other 3d games with full opengl capabilities, but as of yet I haven't been able to get my TV tuner working. I have tried to piece together articles from various google'd sites, but so far I get nothing. Does anyone know of any guide to get my card working or if not, do you have any suggestions on things I could try? I'm really not even sure what program to use or what driver to try. I never could get bttv working, though the module did seem to load. I've tried TVTime and KDE TV, but they dont' seem to detect my card (e.g. KDETV shows "No Devices Found. Read FAQ at" in the Video menu, and both Video4Linux and XVideo are selected for Video Input Methods). Any suggestions are appreciated.
