I think what nonolk is referring to is the fact that the xfree drivers don't support 3D acceleration for the R300 based cards but does for ATI cards based up to the Rv280 chip, which includes the 8500QL. Thus, he has to use the drivers supplied by ATI.

I would also love to hear about any successes with the ATI drivers and this kernel patch - preferably with good instructions, since I am certainly no where near as savvy as nonolk.
