Update Mandrake & conflict with Ati9600pro driver.

I'm newbie, trying ( and blaming ) with linux from less than 2 monthes.

Installed Mdk 9.2 Dwld edition but X did not start. Dwlded ( by windows )
- kernel source
- nforce2 driver
- ati9600pro driver for Xfree 4.3.x version
Installed nforce driver ( builded rpm from srpm ), all ok
Installed ATIdriver, configured module. All ok. ( using rpm -i --force )
Startx, ok.
Then i go to updrake, starting download Security fix, first.
Download all but i got a conflict message.

( word i don't remeber ) usr/X11R6/lib/ from install of libxfree86-4.3-24.1.92mdk conflicts with file from package fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8

fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8 are ati driver.

Linked to this xfree packages there are other 5-6 i cannot install them too.
So i proceeded to install all what i can, except that file. No other packcages was linked to that conflicted pack. Good. Only the 5-6 packages conflicting was not installed.
I closed updrake....and...mený voices disappered !
I have only :
Block Desktop
Close Session

This in root too. I cannot open nothing, i cannot enter in a console env.

1) How i can resolve conflict and installa Xfree, keep my video card working ? ( without installing ati driver i was not able to start x )

2) WHY the mený disappeared !?

From 2 monthes i'm trying to have a stable and working mandrake box...but energy are at minimum. :help:

i reinstalled all. Same procedure but i did not used the FORCE options to install ati driver.
Well, without force option, it says me that it cannot installa ati driver because they conflict with the previous version of the same xfree packages i said in previous post: libxfree86-4.3

Nobody can help me ?
