I have tried to upgrade existing X window and ATI driver on Mandrake 10.1, but had no luck. All the time I got msg that say no Xserver found and you are not in console or you not own it - whatever does it mean I had nothing but problems. if some one know how to do this upgrade and tell me step-by-step I'll grateful

I did finally get my Radeon drivers working. This forum MIGHT help, maybe.
