Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Got the tarball from the link in your readme. Noticed it was a different tarball so just edited the slackbuild to change that No.only. Wouldn't have thought that would make a great deal of difference. But just in case, do you have a link to version 8.721
I will put my steps here, hope will help:
1. - I download the files in this post
2. - download the driver from here: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...21.orig.tar.gz
3. - I put all the files in a folder:
3.1 - Ati Driver
4. - Then inside the folder in a terminal you run
sudo sh fglrx.SlackBuild
5. - You see the output, when it ends you just run in the terminal
sudo installpkg /tmp/fglrx*.tgz
6. - At this time the driver is installed, I recomend reboot the box
7. - Finaly you just have to run
to update your xorg.conf
8. - Start X server and run
if the commands work correctly the driver is installed and functioning.
