Geez. Sorry to say that ATI doesn't have GNU/Linux drivers for mobile graphic cards. You better stick with the generic driver that comes with the OS.

Also, take a look at the ATI Linux faq page.

Sorry to say that you can't. The default driver that comes with the OS is not optimized for openGL. You're gonna be stuck with the 1-frame per second gameplay till ATI releases a driver for Mobility Radeon.

Mathew's post is over a year old, so I doubt that he is still around. However, nice link!
