Install the freshrpms-release package;

rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp....fc.noarch.rpm

When done install the ati-x11-drv package: yum install ati-x11-drv
Now do (as root) after pressing the three key combo of Ctrl+Alt+F1

init 3
(you may have to press the 'Enter' key a few seconds after the last green [OK] here)
system-config-display --reconfig --set-driver=fglrx --set-depth=24

Press the three key combo of Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot the system.

You need a number of packages if your doing this by hand;

The ati-x11-drv is here: http://moonshine.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=477

You will also need the dkms, kernel-devel and kernel-headers rpm packages for Fedora 7, you can find them here;

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../7/Everything/
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...nux/updates/7/

Use the typed command rpm -qa --qf="%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}n" 'kernel*' to figure which packages you need. The dkms rpm package is a noarch package by the way.
