it will work with linux...go to fedora's website, and download fedora core 3 or 4, although i'm unsure if the drivers work with 4 and i am sure the drivers work with 3. install that, and then follow these instructions EXACTLY to install your video card drivers:

you could try this post as it deals with the 2.6.11 kernel and livna ATi drivers(?), but i haven't tried it personally: ... post265012
