ATI Proprietary driver with lfs

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 : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.
ATI module generator V 2.0
patching 'highmem.h'...
assuming new VMA API since we do have kernel 2.6.x...
doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher

Any help anyone could give would be appreciated.
