Fedora 9 Graphics card config problem, ATI Radeon Mobility X200M card

Hi, I've been using fedora since forever on my laptop Toshiba A135-s2286 with ATI Radeon Mobility X200M card which for all earlier versions of fedora I configured without much trouble. I recently upgraded to Fedora 9 which I must say is working wonders in terms of performance even without my graphics card configured especially data transfer, the speeds I get are crazy. Though I need to configure my card, I tried applying the same procedure 'installing the latest ati drivers 8.5 I think, and using commands aticonfig --initial' but on reboot this time X11 wont start. Any quick fixes, other than downgrading X11 to earlier working versions, or a quick safe way of downgrading?
