Apple Cinema Display on Linux

I recently purchased a 23" Apple Cinema Display (the new ones with the DVI connector).  Shortly after buying it, I discovered that I needed DVI cards in order to use it with my Linux (Suse 9.1 and Fedora Core 1) and Windows boxes.  I bought 3 ATI Radeon 9600 LE cards.  Installing on Windows was a breeze - I just needed to use the Radeon CD to install the drivers.  With Linux, I'm lost.  Has anyone successfully setup a Cinema display on Linux?

Thanks,

Matt

ATI has binary driver for Linux on the web site: http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/linux/radeon-linux.html?type=linux&prodType=graphic&prod=productsLINUXdriver&submit.x=14&submit.y=11

Have you tried this driver? If not, make sure that you download the correct version. SuSE 9.1 is shipped with XFree86 4.3.99. I suspect that Fedora Core 1 has a comparable version.

And no, I don't have any experience with the Cinema display, but the first step is to get the graphics card working.
