ATI Linux driver: working setups

This is a list of a few setups that are reported to work fine. Please send me a note if your configuration differs significantly from those already listed; items that come to mind are multiprocessor setups, different chipsets and new kernel options such as CONFIG_REGPARM and CONFIG_4KSTACKS (note that I'm currently running with CONFIG_4KSTACKS enabled myself).

I will usually test new kernel versions in the 2.6 series within hours, but success stories on newer 2.4 kernels are also welcome.
