And check the ATI site, if I remember right they have linux drivers available to download with a complete README file.

the official ati drivers give better performance.
the site i linked lists steps for both installing the prepackaged drivers and the drivers provided on ati's website, but both are the official ati drivers. livna has simply made installing the drivers easy >.<
