I'm using the LinuxBIOS ragexl support, combined with linux framebuffer driver "atyfb". Doing it this way is 100% native, no vendor BIOS is needed, but you don't get video until linux has booted.
Config.lb looks like this device pci 8.0 on end # SATA 0 device pci 9.0 on end # PCI chip drivers/ati/ragexl device pci 5.0 on end end
The other option is to have LinuxBIOS use the vendor BIOS to initialize the rageXL chip, you get video earlier but you need to enable the emulator and retrieve the vendor bios,

The same question about Ati video interesting to, there is a driver in LinusBios sources, can I use it instead of Ami bios part one?
