My experience with r200 cards is that the DRI library will crash the
computer the instant it is loaded. After a long long time of waiting for
a fix, I bought a Nvidia 5500 and have had quite good luck with the
binary-only drivers. =|

Unfortunately, ours is a FreeBSD/AMD64 system. ATI is the only choice for graphics cards.
