We need to use the latest and greatest RPM which Ajax tells me should
be available now.  We do have some changes that are needed in the xorg.conf
to work around problems.  Here's what the device section of the 
xorg.conf should look like:

Section "Device"      
	Identifier  "AMD"
	Driver      "amd"
	Option "PanelGeometry" "800x600"
	Option "NoCompression" "true"
	Option "FBSize" "8388608"

I'm going to change the driver so that compression defaults to off until
I can figure out why its broken.  I do have it working with the panel
on a salsa, so you should be plug and play with the right driver.
