Hello,
I just recently purchased a brand spanking new inspiron 9100 from dell. After about a week of use I finally decided to dive right in and I erased the entire hard drive and installed Fedora Core 2. I have Xorg working, it sees my card and allows me to have the fullscreen. Problem is the that I cannot run any games, not even Chronium or Tux Racer. Does anyone know how to get a Radeon 9700 mobile 128mb card to work under linux so that I can play unreal tournament?

You need the 3d drivers from ati:

4.3.0 version of X (works with Xorg) and 3.9.0 for driver:
