Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I downloaded the RPM and used rpm2tgz to convert it... used installpkg to install the drivers and ran thru fglrxconfig and restarted xfce... I cant seem to get openGL to display the Radion drivers however...
Distribution: Redhat Linux 8 & 9, Fedora Core 2, XP
I've been reading the HowTo from ATI's website and also your post, finally got mine to work~!!! Well... at least the 3D screen savers don't lag anymore
I have a Radeon 9200 and running Redhat 9, no kernel upgrades yet, going to try that later
Here's what i did:
# rpm -Uh --force <ati_package_name>.rpm
# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
# sh make.sh"
# cd ..
# sh make_install.sh
then you should get something like this: display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9200SE DDR Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.9)
One odd thing I noticed when I open the Display Settings under the Advance tab is that the Video card Type is unknown and you can't tick the enable hardware 3d acceleration...
But, its still a lot faster than before~! glxgears gives me 900+FPS, haha
I knwo the problem but I dont kno whow to fix it...
bash-2.05b# sh make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
Are you sure...b/c I know I have upgraded kernels... I used swaret to get the 2.4.26 and installed it... when i was stuck with the problem of finding the source I have always found it in another folder, which I forget as of this moment...
bash-2.05b# sh make_install.sh
- creating symlink
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel module
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY
See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules
Module fglrx loaded, with warnings
I got that when running make_install.sh
