Hi, I just wanted to report that this card works well on my 1400x1050 T60p with fglrx driver. It does however have problems with switching from VT back to X where most of windows don't want to be redrawn anymore. There's a mouse pointer and some elements of windows and menus but I was never able to get all of X state back. restart of X helped. Also I seem to not be able to set 'vsync' correctly, so fast rendering of video frames always shows drawing lines. (i enable DBE and DRI works as shown in Xorg.0.log.

$ fglrxinfo:
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI MOBILITY FireGL V5200 Pentium 4 (SSE2) (FireGL) (GNU_ICD)
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6011 (8.28.8)

UPDATE: Ok I found the problem being in GLX code. If you uncoment LoadModule "glx" in xorg.conf, the VT to X switching works.
