Okay, got x and gnome installed... and I'm trying to install the proprietary driver from ati. I downloaded the .run file from ati, and the installer has an error loading the kernel module.
Here is the output from the installer

[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.
