There was a mention that Suse was releasing a driver 'shortly' is there
any info about whether Redhat/Fedora are contributing or aiding in this
development?

Would love to read more about it.  While it's still early days if there is
an improved 2D driver would that get ported/backported to Fedora 7?

Cheers,

Marc
