    It should work. Just use a live cd, and see if you have any problems. If you don't (or do) then then installing should be the same.

    My Output with fglrxinfo:
    Code:
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 4670
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.8087 Release
    Well I have a newer Version but the same problem: Compiz works, but not Videos, only after deactivating it.

    (Okay the problem is not very bad, compiz is not a must have, only a gimick)

    I had no problems getting 2d to work from the kubuntu live cd for karmic and lucid. This means using the open sourced Radeon driver.

    3d and composite effects were a little trickier, in karmic requiring use of the xorg-edgers ppa repository drivers, which required installing a 2.6.32 kernel from the mainline guys. Overall very easy to do, but a little bit more efforts.
    I've repeated the same steps with a lucid kubuntu install, but I've still not gotten any 3d stuff to work, I think that the dri2 stuff isn't falling into line with the rc1 (2.6.33.something) kernel that I've installed.

    Still all 2d stuff works great right out of the box, and peforms really well, with both karmic and lucid.

    I'd make links to the xorg-edgers and mainline guys, but I've already made these comments a couple of times and so I know that it will be easy for you to find this information. Just one word to the wise, make sure that you upgrade the kernel, before you enable your kde 3d effects (likely the same warning applies to compiz) as it might prevent starting of your desktop, which can be tricky to fix.)

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I am using 64bit everything, on an i7 processor on a Dell studio XPS16, with their HD4670 1GB video card.
