This is not related to AMD64, but will enemy territory run fine with dri 
?? I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 on my laptop (5.4-RELEASE) and I'd 
like to play there since it is a lot better than the card on my 
workstation, but I've been unable to, because I don't know any good 
opengl driver for ati/freebsd .. I've not researched about this issue 
for some time now, would I be able to play with decent FPS using dri?
