Ah-HAHAHAHAHA! Drive support from ATI? That's a good one.

BTW this is from the FAQ page on that driver:

Q2: Which ATI graphics cards can use this driver?

The ATI Proprietary Linux driver currently supports RADEON 8500 and later AGP or PCI Express graphics products, as well as FireGL 8700 and later products. We do not currently plan to include support for any products earlier than this. Drivers for earlier products should already be available from the DRI Project or Utah-GLX project.

So, the Radeon 7000 will not work with it. Damn you ATI, and I mean that quite literally.

I hate ATI.
