Actually, there are free 3D drivers for ATI R100 and R200 based
graphics cards, i.e., Radeon 9250 and below.
There are people working on R300, but AFAIK that's without getting the
programming information from ATI, so if you want to vote with your
wallet, stick with the R200-based cards (and don't buy Nvidia).
