ATI Card - new driver...did it install?

Hi there,

I'm running Fedore Core 1 with an ATI card.

I downloaded the ATI RPM with the latest drivers. After the download, I double clicked on the package, but I don't know if it actually did anything or not (didn't see any status windows etc).

How can I be sure that it installed okay and that my system is indeed using these drivers?
