When i try to run the game, i receive this error:

I just got mandrake for 3 days ago, so I'm totally newbie to this O/S... My GFX is a radeon 9500 pro, running on a A7N8X deluxe....

What have I done wrong?

I tried to download the drivers from ATI too, but when I try to install them I get his error:

file /usr/X11R6/lib/ from install of fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-29mdk

Please be nice to me, as I have been used to windows.... and I don't understand much of this great O/S..
