Screw it. I dug around and looked at that gatos site that supposedly has 
drivers for ati cards and it is MONUMENTALLY confusing. No chance any normal 
end user could ever use it.

As for updating X, it's only slightly less intimidating and confusing. I 
couldn't even begin to guess where to start trying to upgrade -- and that's 
AFTER reading the instructions at the XFree site.

No chance. :-(

I'll just have to live with it until someone else fixes the problem and 
uploads the fixes to some yum server or it gets incorporated into the next 
version of FC or some other linux or until I get a new computer with 
different hardware.
