The 9100IGP is not supported by the ATI closed-source drivers or the GATOS
project.  It is supported by the XFree and XOrg projects, but they don't
have TV-out support.

It took me a few months to find this out.

If you're looking for a motherboard with on-board graphics that works,
don't go for the 9100IGP.
