[PlanetCCRMA] ATI and F8

After getting my F8/planetccrma dual-boot setup mostly working on my
iMac, I'm left with graphics card issues. My mac has an ATI Radeon HD
2600 card. The default generic driver that loaded doesn't support 
1680x1050 resolution. I tried the open source ati driver and it gave me 
all kinds of bad artifacts, so I then tried the fglrx driver by adding 
the kmod-fglrx metapackage from livna.  As I understand it, this is 
supposed to automatically add the correct modules for your kernel. It 
seems to work well with the stock kernel, but doesn't 
load properly with the planetccrma rt kernel, which I guess should be 
expected, since it doesn't know about planetccrma.

My question is what do I need to do to make this work? I'm a bit vague 
on kernel modules and drivers. Do I need to rebuild the kernel and 
somehow wrap in this package? Or rebuild the package against the kernel? 
Or somehow just shove something into the kernel?
