In an attempt to fit an ATi Radeon 9200 PCI for Mac into a beige G3 minitower running Mac OS 9.2.2, it was quickly discovered that the January 2005 ATI OS9 Radeon Update drivers are deficient, in spite of explicitly mentioning the card.

Clues on the almighty internet suggested that the DVI-I versions of the Radeon 9200 need a different set of drivers. Unfortunately, the archive link was broken.

Searching the filename turned an archive of the same name, and apparently related contents.

Manual installation of the files rendered a slow, but workable boot with the 9200. A lot of additional digging failed to produce an ATi control panel that works properly with this card, in this system.
