Debian Sarge, Kernel 2.6.5 and ATI Drivers

Is anyone here has a system working with an ATI Radeon Familly, with kernel 2.6.5 ?

if yes i ll have serval question, cause i am able to launch my x-window but it seems that the module fglrx was not compilated, and when i want to do it manually, it said that i m missing a file, version.h .

I ll post more informations tomorrow, but if someone can already help me i ll be real happy cause i don't know how to have my OpenGL working.

I followed the instructions from here

to build the driver. The XF86Config options he used did not work for me though. I get a DRIScreenInit failed error. If you get configuration errors, try following the instructions from this thread, it worked for me.
