The reason this is required stems from the Mobility chips being somewhat
different from their desktop counterparts.  They are essentially new chips,
and the driver was not present in the Fedora Core timeframe.  The 9600SE is
in the same boat... It says 9600, but is not nearly the same chip as the
full 9600 series.  If it works in 4.3.99.x bugzilla it and hopefully the
driver will be backported to FC2.
