AMD Fusion driver problems....

So I recently bought an Acer 522, it has a nice APU but the problem is I fglrx doesn't seem to be able to find the APU. How do I correctly install the graphics card for 3D acceleration?

I'm using Debian Squeeze btw

You probably need a newer kernel. The Fusion APU seems to be working in distros with newer kernels. If its not the kernel, it would be your Catalyst version, the APU is working with 11.2 and above (and possibly earlier versions as well, I'm not too sure).
