fglrx problems in suse 8.2

alright im new to all of this stuff, as is implied, and i recently installed suse 8.2 everything is fine until i install,.... erm "try to install" the drivers for my ati radeon 9500 pro. i type in the rpm commands and it starts to install than says something like this

" tailored kernel module fglrx not present in your system
go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod and execute ./ then
go to /lib/modules/fglrx/ and exectute ./"

then it finishes the install and says your 3d mode will be unavailible and after i log out or restart, the x windows system is completely unavailible, it wont start cause it says its already started, and when i type startkde, it says that wont start cause it cant find the xserver, so now i cant even go in and try what it told me to do earlier, is there anyway i can get back into kde to do this? or can i do what it asked me to do from the command line? and even if i do what it asks, will this fix the original problem?

thanks for any help, i would really appreciate it

Just run it form the command line. Boot up and log in as root and run:

# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
# ./
# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/
# ./

Then reboot and see if it works:

# reboot
