[PlanetCCRMA] [OT] Radeon Mobility 9700 on FC2

After many hours of hunting, I found a kernel module (RPM), and a fglrx
driver (RPM) at livna.org (I now love livna). Installing these works
fine with a 2.6.9 FC2 kernel and xorg. The 3D performance still isn't
perfect, but DRI is now enabled, and glxgears gives me 1400 FPS (7 times
what I had with the radeon module). This is good enough for me.

However, the kernel module is only available in binary form, so although
installation is simple, it is only available for certain kernels i.e.
not planetccrma. I guess it's time to compile my own.
