radeon 9800 driver install problems


ok before trying to download drivers a ran xdpyinfo | more
to see what version of xf86 and i get
Code:
root@Home:~# xdpyinfo | more
name of display:    :0.0
version number:    11.0
vendor string:    The XFree86 Project, Inc
vendor release number:    40300000
XFree86 version: 4.3.0
so i downloaded the 4.3.0 version of the drivers.

so i went and downloaded/installed glib 2.3, but i'm still getting the same dependency violations that i was before.

i'm running slack 9.0 with the 2.4.21 kernel. can any of you help a poor n00b in need? i'd really like to get this installed cuz vesa drivers on a radeon 9800 pro is a shame indeed. thanks in advance
