    When you say you configured your drivers properly, do you mean that you downloaded and ran the driver installer as root, and then ran the X config tool that came with the drivers? If so, then you might just need to reboot so that the right kernel modules get settled into place all nice and neat.
    (I know, Linux should rarely need to reboot, but that's just the easiest way to finish installing 3D drivers.)

    Let's get some diagnostics. First, the simple stuff. What's the ouput of the following two commands:
    Code:
    $ fglrxinfo
    
    $ lsmod |grep fglrx
    Hopefully the first one will include a line saying "Direct rendering: Yes" or something similar, and the second one will return one line of info.

    also, to make sure you are using the ati libraries instead of mesa what does:

    Code:
    glxinfo | grep rendering
    tell us.

    You should also post the result of

    Code:
    lspci
    and the relevant portions of xorg.conf ie. not all the commented out stuff it is too hard to read.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    You may or may not need to install xlibmesa-dri. Usually Debian will enable the 3d by default if the appropriate drivers are in place =)

    looks as if you might not have kernel source installed you should be able to do that through your package manager.

    apt-get kernel-sources or something like that most likely

    EDIT: It is apparent that the module is not properly installing so you need to figure that out first, which I why I suggest checking if kernel source is installed.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    On Debian you don't need the full sources, but you do need the headers.
    Try this:
    Code:
    # apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.8-2-386
    or if that fails,
    Code:
    # apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386
    then try installing the video drivers again.
