-------------Note:
Because kernel replacements have (and likely will) come along, you have
to re-apply the rpm occasionally. I keep this little script to do this. Note
that I do not have to run Sax again after a kernal update.

gotroot:~ # cat upgrade-ati
./ati-driver-installer-8.32.5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE102-AMD64
rpm --replacepkgs -Uhv fglrx64_7_1_0_SUSE102-8.32.5-1.x86_64.rpm
aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
