CentOS 4.2 does NOT work with ATI! Period! not x86-64 and x86.. X 
is completely screwed up. I hope that this will be fixed with 
4.3. I had to switch to an nVidia card that works perfectly.

This is not just CentOS, it's X. I had the same problem with 
Ubuntu, but SuSE worked perfectly without any problem, they have 
newer drivers.

I tried with the drivers from X and from ATI, same.

If you can live with it, you can edit Xorg.conf and change the 
driver to VESA, but it's ugly.
