This is most likely the perennial multiple PCI bus ISA IO problem in
userland that plagues many Macs. I won't go into the discussion again of
why this is a problem, as this has been discussed here many times (see old
posts about this problem on G4's), but a quick solution may be to put the
card in the 1st slot, or whichever slot corresponds to the io_base
syscall. I have never used a 9600 so ask around which slot this is.
Also, have you tried radeonfb?
