Terrific news.  Thanks for the info -- I'm sorry I missed your
february post.  Note that my method still works for Fedora 7 - I
suppose I should not have assumed that things hadn't changed for 8.
This change is for the better, though, and makes the drivers a lot
more flexible.  If you're running 8, could you take a look and see
what happens if you try to compile the fglrx drivers using the same
method?  I'll get to it later this week, but I'm anxious to know...
