Okay, not your fault, but for the 1,000th time here's how to install ATI drivers, and you WILL run into problems and when you do, post your problems.
1) download ATI drivers at ati.com website
2) install kernel-source
3) go to console
5) rpm -i filename.rpm
6) type fxlgrconfig, or something like that. It'll tell you after your install the drivers.
7) after going through the text-based configuration, play a game like Tux Racer
If you are using Mandrake 10, then you will encounter problems, but let us know when you do and I'll post a link in the GAMES sectino of the forums where it talks about converting the RPM2TGZ and manually installing the drivers. It's a real pain. Good luck
