Drivers are in the kernel (/lib/modules/<specific
kernel>/kernel/drivers/... and there are two of them, radeon.ko and
radeofb.ko. These are always part of the kernel rpm, loaded as modules.

Are you suggesting there are additional drivers? Back "in the day,"  
matrox distributed proprietary linux drivers. I am unaware that ATI
distribues them for the radeon.
