So, install the official RPM as ATI suggests, but change the Xorg.conf line?

Or install the Synaptic package and change it?

and what about configfglrx?

Installed Ubuntu using the default driver, then used synaptic to install the fglrx package. Then changed the 'driver' line in xorg.conf to fglrx. Didn't need to stuff about with configfglrx.

I can send you a copy of my xorg.conf file if you like, it'll probably need changed for your monitor (mine is a 1680x1050 LCD on a laptop) but it should be a good start.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
