How I got my ATI drivers installed..
 
The best way I know of installing the ATI drivers is to do it manually...
-Go to the directory where you downloaded the rpm file
-Open a terminal and type rpm2tgz <packagename.rpm>
-Extract the .tgz
-Move all the files to the named directory
-Run make.sh and make_install.sh
-Run fglrxconfig

Thats worked the best for me, worked every time so far. Good Luck!
:D

Can you provide some specifics about your video card, mobo, chipset, the distro you're using, etc? That would definitely be useful info -- J.W.

This worked best for me on Fedora, RedHat, and Slackware.

My video card is an ATI Radeon 9000.
Mobo chipset it a KT400 (Forget exact brand ect.)
