ATI Driver screw up. X crashes

Ok, I was trying to install the ATI drivers for my Radeon 9000 Pro and after restarting X, X crashes. The X config script thing does not fix the problem. I am running Mandrake 10 and am a total noob to linux. At least lynx works

You posted this in lynx? now that's dedication...

Take a look at /var/log/XFree86.0.log, or if Mandy switched to the new X server: Xorg.0.log, that'll be chocked full of juicy error messaging. If in doubt go ahead and post the whole mess here (it might take 2 posts, there's a max character count).
