Which graphic chipset do you have? Unofficially, Mathematica 6 can
benefit from hardware 3D antialiasing only when the graphics card
supports it. You may encounter a slight visual problem (like blurred
tick marks), but it is not limited to Mathematica (it is rather
general hardware AA problem), though.

You probably want to check out ATI's official Linux driver and FAQs of
your particular Linux distribution for AA support on the specific
