Thanks! I would of course use an outstanding radeon driver from Fedora 
instead of using an outside the distro version. With the decayed 
graphics quality though, outside drivers if they work better would be a 
solution until the radeon driver (Multistage with the ati, if I recall) 
is in a tolerable state again. I'm putting up the white flag for 
submitting bugs since the last problem with the i810 was shuffled 
upstream for most of the bug correspondence. I think the radeon problem 
would be handled the same if a report was posted in RH bugzilla.


Windows hasn't increased computer literacy. It's just lowered the standard.
