Can't Install ATI Drivers in Mandrake 10


I tried to install the driver for my Radeon X800 Pro in Mandrake 10 but got this error:
Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-4.1.0-3.11.1 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-30mdk

you may have to FORCE the install.

rpm -Uvh --force filename.rpm

Hi there!

If got exact the same problem on Mandrake 10 (and a 9600pro).
If just try to install the driver, I get the same error as svoltmer. so I tried to force the install.
Then I get this in bash:
---
rpm -Uvh --force fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:fglrx ########################################### [100%]
*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
*** WARNING ***
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.

failed.
*** Error: no kernel module build environment - please consult readme.
Installed: qt3 (gcc 3.2) based control panel application
===
ATI display drivers successfully installed
please run 'fglrxconfig' now
===
---

Ok so I tried to do waht it says, but if I run ./make.sh in that folder I just get this:
bash: ./make.sh: Permission denied

I'm logged into bash as root

What could I do now?

Thanks a lot,

TB2

*edit:
The error was this one, described at ATI: http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4475.html
So I did what they say there, but instead of giving me something like
"linux -> kernel-source-x.x.x"
after giving this command
"[root@localhost src]# ln -s kernel-source-2.6.3 linux",
bash just gives me this if I check with "ls -1" again:
[root@localhost src]# ls -1
ATI/
linux@
nvidia/
RPM/

Before I tried to add something it was:

[root@localhost src]# ls -1
ATI/
nvidia/
RPM/

Figured I'd use this thread. the newest released driver. 4.3.0-3.12.0

I keep getting an error that module fglrx is in use, the drivers install, but when running glxgears, I go from
13241 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2648.200 FPS
16420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3284.000 FPS
16608 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3321.600 FPS
16579 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3315.800 FPS
16572 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3314.400 FPS



to less than 300.

what am I doing wrong, I've even tried to uninstall the old driver(3.11.1) and install the new ones. I'm running the 2.6.3-16MDK kernel and Xfree86 version 4.3.0.1 on Mandrake 10 and a Radeon 9800XT 256MB.
