"radeon' is the radeon driver from xorg-x11. That's normally a pretty
good driver.

I don't think ati is the best driver, but possibly it works better for
dual monitor. I don't know.

The driver from the ATI closed source package is "fglrx". It's good
for accelerated stuff.

Heck, I'm not even running the Planet distro anymore (except for my
son's machine) and I'm still here. It's a great list. Happy to help
