I did the same, no good. Do you mean the link:

I did all as suggested. Like I'm saying - driver loads, X starts, no
errors, warnings, any signs of anything wrong, fglrx* programs work OK.
Only no 3D acceleration, despite direct rendering enabled. I used the
most actuall binary deb available for Dapper, ie. 8.28.8, provided in
seveas Dapper repo. I should give it a shot with the older one,
Dapper's stock 8.25.18, if time allows. Anyway - ATI sucks. I wish I
bought a laptop with NVIDIA instead.
