Webcams and graphics

Ok. Two questions for you lot...

FIrstly i want to get the drivers for my ATI Radeon 9600 but i don't know which version of X-Windows i'm using (XFree86 or X.Org). I've downloaded the '' file from their site but it doesn't want to run:

ATI Technologies
You are either not running this script from the console
or simply do not have console ownership. Requirement failed.
Unable to determine XFree86 Version. Stopping now.

Secondly, i've got a webcam (Genius VideoCAM NB 300) and basically want a nice step by step guide on how to get it working.

I'm running Mandrake/Mandriva 10.2 (Limited Edition 2005). If you need anymore info then i'll try and help (make sure you tell me how to get the info too...not to good with all the commands and stuff). Thanks
