  Hi Neal,
        I just got a Dell D610 with ATI M300 and the livna rpms.
 Tv-out works fine, if you are connected to the TV at boot. You can user
mode switch the video stream between screen and TV with aticonfig.
I didn't try hotkeys.

 The Fedora 3D games don't work: ppracer, bzflag...
 Doom 3 and Quake 4 are fine though.
   For a DVD, the sata drive means I have had to use Dave's test
2.6.15pre kernels.

    Good luck!
