Funny I've been using ATI cards in Linux since my VGAWonderlxl24 and never had a problem, though some people have. Perhaps you might start by installing using the free drivers and get things working and then try installing AMD's drivers if you find you need them.
BTW, nVidia isn't "recommended" on Linux any more than ATI is. There is the same red/green divide as exists independant of OS. In fact the video that seems to work best with fewest problems is Intel.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
