then download this file
this should work for installing the ati drivers
this is what you have to do to install it
hit SHIFT-ALT-F1 ,this will bring you into a terminal console
then log in as root
type "init 3"
this should kill the Xserver
then type "sh install-radeon-debian.sh"
this should install the ati-drivers
if this all works and you get no error messages
just type "init 5" to test your Xserver
I hope this helps you and by the way..
