What does "man aticonfig" say? If there is no man page, what does
"aticonfig --help" return? Does it say to have a space between the flag

I tried to do this: http://en.opensuse.org/ATI_Radeon_Xpress
This procedure worked for openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 (64 bits) installed on Averatec 7155 EH1 (7100 series). It worked also on Dell Inspiron 1501 with the mentioned ATI Radeon Xpress200.
One click install mentioned on ATI page didn't work as described on ATI page.
Typing glxinfo on the terminal found direct rendering: No OpenGL vendor string: Mesa
First, install using the 1 click installer mentioned at the top of ATI, package ati-fglrxG01-kmp-default and x11-video-fglrxG01 will be installed if you want ensure by yast installation software and restart X11 by typing ctrl+space+backspace. You will notice by typing
into a konsole will report that you are still not using direct acceleration or the fglrx driver.
As root do
After logging in as root do
mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-001
sax2 -r -m 0=radeon
aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
Adjust the screen settings as desired, and after you're finished type
to start up X again.
You may verify the configuration with glxinfo/glxgears to ensure that fglrx is working properly.
It did not work. The aticonfig --initial..........did not work.
