ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386 good install, not working


I have an ATI x850xt. I installed the driver ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386 and got no errors, but I can't find it in my xwindows set-up. I'm still using that crappy vesa driver.
I'm using fedora 4 latest build.

Thanks in advance.....

Look into your X configuration file (in /etc/X11). How does your section 'Device' look like?
