Error loading the gui (Radeon 9200)

I installed Redhat Linux 9.0 SuSE on my machine. It detected generic drivers on my system that were halfway compadable on my system. (Didn't support 3D graphics) So naturally I downloaded and installed the Catalyst drivers for Linux. After I rebooted my system Linux loaded with the gui disabled. I tried to type xstart but some error came up saying something like the image cannot load, or something like that. I heard this problem before on the forums but the instrutions that were on the other thread didn't pertain to my video card.

I have Radeon 9200 and SuSE 9, too, and it works fine except for 3D acceleration but thats because of my mainboard (nforce). Install the lates drivers from ATI (I installed fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8.i586.rpm), do insmod fglrx, after that fglrxconfig.
