ati drivers and mandrake

I need some info on getting my ati 9500 pro working 100% with mandrake 9.1
I have seen posts on this topic but nothing seems to help.
I have gone as far as ./ and ./

everything seems to work.

I get MESA GL listed when I fglxinf.
I should be getting ATI or FireGL instead.

I seem to have VESA entries when I type dmesg.
The card was running under vesa mode prior to installing the xfree4.3 drivers.
Is this a problem?
Can it be removed?

Also I see that the agpgart apeture is not defined when I get a dmesg list.

Please help.

It is a good learning experience for me, I know so little and have come about 1/2 way in this effort.

i don't how it works with ATI cards

but with nvidia cards you have to edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file
and change the approprate line so Linux is pointed to the right driver
