ATI Remote kernel module

i'm sure that this question has been answered before, however, i cannot find the answer i'm looking for.

I have just recompiled my kernel to get usb working (upgraded to 2.6-epia) and i compiled ati_remote as a kernel module and set it load on start-up. i have also downloaded lirc and have it running at default.
when i check ot see if it is loading the driver:

#lircd --nodaemon
lircd 0.7.0[11246] lircd(serial) ready

also when i try to set the driver to use as atiusb
#lircd --driver=atiusb
Driver `atiusb' not supported.
Supported drivers:

the only documentation that i can find on this is: (using the config files from here)

but all of which are referring to a kernel module at Gatos that says that the ati remote is supported in LIRC 0.7.0+ and is also available as a kernel module in 2.6 (which i have done)

how do i get lirc (or linux in general) to recognize the ati remote and use it as regular input device.

i would like to get the remote working before i move onto installing and configuring X.

any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
