Xfree Not working after video driver upgrade

Hey All
I was tiring to get a game to work so I updated my Radeon 9000 driver. It was an RPM so I assumed it would set everything up for me. Well that did not happen. Nor when X tries to start I get a Blue screen with a yes and no at the bottom. If I click yes it tells me how to report a problem an no takes me to another blue screen. when I finally get to the end of these screens it states no screens installed or something like that. So I figured their would be a way to rerun the X setup. I have tried navigating to /usr/x11/bin and running ./XF86Config no such command I ls X* and cant seem to see any kind of setup command. I read some other post and looked at XFree86 web site they say to use XFree86 -configure Now that doe something but nothing is configured and then it tells me how to report errors. I am using RH9 with the latest Kernel. Can someone let me know how to fix this. I am a little disappointed that updating a driver is this difficult but hopefully if is just my inexperience with Linux

To run the xfree86 config, you have to su to root first. Do this by typing su root and then you're password (easy, isn't it?). After that, try to run fglrxconfig again.
