Very soon, the fglrx drivers will be packaged and ready to run out of the
box.  The packages were not ready for the preview release, but work has

I have done many successful installs on an NForce3-based system, but it does
not have SATA.  What OS is currently installed on it?  Can you provide lspci
-v output?  Do you know which drivers, if any, in the Linux kernel
correspond to your hardware?
