Check out this tutorial which works as I have done it myself.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...icle&artid=409

Mandrake 10.1 uses X.org, but you need to update x.org to 6.8 for the new ATI drivers to work. BUT, just to be safe, download the check.sh file from the ati.com website and run it. If it says it cannot find an xfree86, then you are definitely are using Xorg.
