ATI Driver module build fail


I am trying to install the ATI 3.7.0 driver on my FC1 Test1 x86_64 (X version 4.3.0-42; kernel 2.4.22-1.2166) system to enable dualhead yet the rpm install gives me this error:

Code:

*** 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.

 === 
ATI display drivers successfully installed
please run 'fglrxconfig' now

Yet if I run fglrxconfig and set it all up then when I try to start x it says that it cant load the fglrx module so obviously I need to build it. Obviously I somehow need to get the elf32 lib or else trick it into thinking that is it, does anyone have any suggestions? Would 2.6 kernel or bleeding edge xfree86 help me here?

Thanks for any help.
