try this:

download ATI drivers from website and save it to your desktop for now

go konsole or your RUN bar and type: mcc
(enter root password)

Go to Software
Add RPM or UPDATE or whatever

there will be a search field box
type in kernel-source

a search result will pop up
click the box and install it
(Enter mandrake CD's)

after it is done installing, close the Mandrake conctrol center. Go back to terminal/console and type: su
(root password)

go to the directory where you saved the RPM file by typing something like: cd /home/username/Desktop/
then type: RPM -i filename.rpm
at the end, type: fglrxconfig
Then configure. Run a game, like Tuxracer and see if it works. Let me know if this works or not.
