This solution worked for me when I used kanotix linux (debian variant).
I didn't have to remove any packages, the script took care of it.
I had beautiful graphics on a ATI 9000 Pro video card with it. I read
that the script will also work with debian.
F.Y.I I used LormaLinux (it uses Xorg for video) and found that I didnt
have to install the ATI drivers to get great 3-D graphics. Its based on
the Fedora Core (Red Hat) but it has the Synaptic Package Manager for
easy software installs and updates. Its is very user friendly and easy
to install. Give it a try if you cant get it working for you.
