Glad it worked for you John.
As to the other, sometimes I think it's just ignorance on ATIs side. They
should know about these tweaks before we do. Maybe they do and just don't
want to deal with support for users that try it and don't get it to work.
Maybe they're waiting to see how many copies of Vista sold in the first
month (allocation of resources and all that). It's been my experience that
drivers are very much an after-thought with many hardware vendors (of
course, ATI Catalyst drivers have their own history).
