This is all well and good, but the fact remains that your original
statement ("ATI does NOT support Linux or Xfree in ANY way") was
wrong.  This isn't really a black and white issue, and while ATI may
not be the most open-computing-friendly company, I really think there
are many more worthy targets for such boycotts.

As far as the original question goes, I'm running XFree86 on my
Xpert@Play and it works great.  If you're still wary about installing
hamm and opt for bo instead, you may want to upgrade to a later
version of the XFree86 Mach64 server (at least I did when I installed
it...the version being 3.3.2 I think).
