ATI drivers and AMD X86/64 error.

Hey I got this error when I tried to run the ATI driver installer on my SuSe 10 3800 AMD X86/64 system (running in full 64Bit mode). Does anybody know what it is and/or how to fix it?

Detected configuration:
Architecture: x86_64 (64-bit)
X Server: Xorg 6.8.2

Detected version of X does not have a matching 'x680_64a' directory
You may override the detected version using the following syntax:
     X_VERSION=<xdir> ./ati-driver-installer-<ver>-<arch>.run [--install]

The following values may be used for <xdir>:
    x410        XFree86 4.1.x
    x420        XFree86 4.2.x
    x430        XFree86 4.3.x
    x680        X.Org 6.8.x
    x690        X.Org 6.9.x
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install
Any help would be appreciated.
