really choppy
i'm runnin AMD ATHLON XP 2400+ (bios says its 1800+ cuz i have a ECS K7S5A PRO
and it needs a flash)
but i have 524 megs of ram
and a 540 meg swap

i need REALLY detailed explenation (lets pretend i have none of the tools required to get them except internet and terminal)

Thanks

It requires the proprietary drivers be installed from ATI's website:
