Installing ATI Drivers
I downloaded and ran it where i downloaded it /home/magus0216/ and tried to run and it gives me this error
ATI Technologies
Your possibly not running this script from the console
or maybe you simply dont have the console ownership.
Unable to determine XFree86 Version. Stopping now.

So I tried using su to get root and it gave me the same thing. Any suggestions?

log into root directly?

If you are running Mandrake 10.1, you are probably running Xorg, not XFree86, so won't be able to find it. ;)

I understand that the latest version of the ATI drivers does work fine with Xorg.

Ok thanks. I'm a noob so I might as well ask. Whats Xorg.

Well I got them to install but it said I need to build a custom kernel? I went through the config but I didnt know my refresh rate settings for my monitor so I had to abort and when I rebooted I got a nice command prompt :) . Is there a guide for n00bs for this stuff?
