Well, not exactly as I'd like to have it, but I am writing this post on Athena using a Knoppix boot CD. I did this at RFH's suggestion (shudder). He kept insisting that I boot Windows to make sure the hardware wasn't defective, so this will shut him up. I haven't had much success with the graphics driver (not that I've been spending much time on it), so I had my doubts about the card's functioning. Knoppix boots to KDE just fine, though, so the problems I was having were due to the software. This is an x86 CD, though. I think I'm going to try a 686 configuration, thereby skirting all the 64-bit issues I was running into.
