	Hmmm, could you tell me which is the option in Intel and Radeon
drivers? Or which is the option in xorg.conf that I should look for? :)
I mean, I would like to search about it and lookig for something close
or related, but it is going to be easy if I know which is the option
that you are refering. :-)

	BTW, when I was not using ATI proprietary driver, only "ati"
or "radeon" in my xorg.conf (instead of "fglrx") the video renders
without any extra options, of course, I'm missing something, but I'll
be happy if you could help to point this option out.

	Thanks in advance, kind regards,
