        What is supposed to be missing as far as flat panel support is
concerned?  I just got the same Radeon card connected to a Samsung
flat panel and it seems to work (in digital mode).  I'm using Ben's
rsync kernel (2.4.11-pre4-ben0) with Fukui-san's XFree86 4.1.99
RPM's. I have an old world machine though, so I use BootX to boot.

        By the way, how do you specify the video mode at boot time?  I
had to change the default video mode in radeonfb.c to 1280x1024-8 at 61
since the Samsung doesn't seem to like 640x480-8 at 60.
