Radeon 9000 install help


I get this kind of error when running ./make_install.sh while installing ati radeon drivers. Please help

- creating symlink
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel module
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY
See tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: init_module: Operation not permitted
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: insmod fglrx failed
failed.

OK, it seems that I'm talking to my self. But
this is the message what dmesg gives
Code:
[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 431 MBytes.
[fglrx:firegl_stub_register] *ERROR* Fire GL kernel module has to be loaded prior to any other DRM kernel module!
So what does this mean? How I load Fire GL module prior to any other DRM module? I beleave that when I get this fglrx module installed I will also have 3d acceleration.

maybe you actually have to install fglrx?

there seems to be packages for it.

What do you mean not "actually installing". I am installing the rpm then I go to the module place (/lib/modules/fglrx...) and run ./make.sh then cd .. and ./make_install.sh and then the error comes. After there simply ins't anything to do.
