Debian and Radeon HD4850

I've just installed old Debian Wheezy beta1 on my new hardware and I'm updating everything at the moment. I don't know how do I enable my graphics card. I have read something about fglrx drivers but I don't exactly know how to build everything. Could someone tell or link me how to install and build everything.
