Neat! Can't wait to hear what it's like :)

By the way, to get the x1400 working, all you need to do is "yum 
--enablerepo=livna install kmod-fglrx" and then adjust 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf (by hand or using the ati utility)
It's pretty stable in this case (suspend/hibernate both work, 3D 
acceleration works..)
