ATI 9200 PCI for OS 9 games??

Hi, I'm planning to buy the ATI Radeon 9200 PCI mac edition to play OS 9 games on my MDD.

However, when I had the Radeon 9000 pro AGP, I was not able to use OpenGL under OS 9, so I fear I would have the same trouble with the 9200 PCI. Any1 here knows how to get a 9200 PCI (or the 9000 pro) working proprely under OS 9?

Also, is there any issue with using one AGP and one PCI card at the same time? Can I like... disable the Radeon under OS X and diable my Nvidia AGP under OS 9?... Do I have to select the video card, and how?... Well I hope you get the idea...

Thanks for helping out!

Should work fine, I had an ibook G4 with a 9200 and used to game on it. You can get the OpenGL drivers here if you need them. You can run PCI and AGP together, just set your main display in Displays and it will use the appropriate GPU.
