Install the latest version of Chameleon 2.1.

If that doesn't help, set SMmemtype=24 in /Extra/smbios.plist.



Remove arch=i386 kernel flag from your /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. (it's probably called com.apple.Boot.plist on your installation).


I don't know anything about ATI cards. Try to find Netkas' blog and look for more information over there.
