Here's what Stanton Finley wrote:

If you are using an ATI video card or chipset type the following in the
root terminal: 
        yum -y --enablerepo livna install kmod-fglrx
        Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. (If you have
        an smp kernel use "yum -y --enablerepo livna install
        kmod-fglrx-smp" instead.) If you get an error with this
        procedure it probably means that your kernel is more recent than
        the kernels for which Livna has built ATI kernel modules. If
        this is the case switch to an older kernel (if you have one) on
        your Fedora boot menu or wait a few days until Livna gets the
        graphics acceleration module rpms built for the most recent
        kernel. When you update your kernel you will have to update your
        ATI driver as well. Do this with a "yum -y --enablerepo livna
        update kmod-fglrx" as root after you have booted into the new
        kernel. (Do not proceed until you have executed the two SELinux
        commands in the paragraph at the bottom of this secton.) 
      * If you got a message "FATAL: Could not
        rename /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/modules.dep.temp
        into /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/modules.dep: Permission
        denied" during installation type the following at the root
        mv /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/modules.dep.temp /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/modules.dep
        Hit enter. When you see "overwrite
        `/lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2111_FC5/modules.dep'?" type "y" and hit
        Ole Stanton was never wrong. :) Ric
