CAREFULLY follow the instructions in the download from ATI, and
build the rpm being careful to select the proper processor type.

Then install the rpm
They type this as root:
aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

That will build a proper xorg.conf for you.

There should be no reason to go into sax2 or yast, but if you want to
launch sax2 you can by this command
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
