cannot insert module fglrx for ati

I've been trying to install the ATI driver. When I do I get the error that it cannot insert the module fglrx.ko : Operation not permitted.

How can i fix this?

I compiled the ATI direct rendering support into the kernel, can that be the problem?

That is indeed the problem

You need to leave agpgart and any DRI drivers as modules.
If you look at the output from dmesg after trying to modprobe fglrx, you'll see it complain that it can't be loaded after any other DRI drivers.
