You'll have to downgrade to at least Xorg 7.3. In addition, you'd have to downgrade your kernel. Honestly, if you must use fglrx, you should stick with an older distribution, such as Slackware 12.* or Ubuntu 8.10. Nothing newer will work with fglrx on your card since you'll have to use fglrx 9.3.

You're much better off just using the open source radeon driver.

Hmmm... Perhaps I have the versions off slightly. In any case, you would still have to downgrade Xorg and the kernel, and that's not recommended.

To get Xorg working with the radeon driver, you should start by starting X without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and then show us the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file that is generated so that we can figure out what's going on.

You said the X server will not work, but there is no problem with your log file. What do you mean by "XServer will not work"?

Well you are using the radeon driver, and it's working fine. It looks like the KDE crashing is due to KDE, not Xorg or the driver. Try another window manager and see if that works.
