Are you sure you really got that pkg ???
The new driver is version 3.2.8, ...iirc the 1.2.0 was the first driver they ever released ~1 1/2 yr ago, you wouldn't wanna loose your time with that, I can assure you.
Anyway, one word of advice, make sure you run kernel >= 2.4.22 ...and matching sources if you use rpm pkgs.
kernel-headers, if they come in a separate pkg, might be a good idea too if you don't plan to build the sources.
Install with rpm -ivh --force <pkg>
, --force is to overwrite XFree's libGL, which is usually easier than removing Mesa.
When you're done installing the driver, you'll be instructed to run #fglrxconfig
When presented with the option, choose "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"
I've read of several folks for who it was as easy as that ...and others who haven't got it to work yet. YMMV
