Thank you Bruno for the info. I had no idea such a test day was being
organized. I will definitely put in my results as soon as I download
the Rawhide Live CD. For others interested please visit
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2009-09-09_Radeon for more

I should be reading the Fedora Weeklies. If I had done that, never
would have missed it.
