ATI driver update problems (old driver for XFree86 4.3.x to new driver for Xorg 6.8.1)

I'm running Fedora Core 3 with Xorg 6.8.1 and kernel 2.6.10-1.741_FC3.
I updated from Fedora Core 1 a few weeks ago.
I had the old ATI driver installed with fc1.
Today I tried to play a game and noticed that there wasn't any 3d
fglrxinfo returned:
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)

I entered rpm -q fglrx to see if the driver was still installed.
But this driver is for XFree86 4.3.x and I have Xorg 6.8.1.
So I downloaded the new driver "fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm" from the
ati page.
I tried to install it:
[root at linux downloads]# rpm -Uh fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm
Error: Failed dependencies:
        fglrx-glc22 conflicts with fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386
Looks like this drive conflicts with the old driver.
I tried deleting the old one:
[root at linux downloads]# rpm -e fglrx-glc22
Error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) winex-20021008-1.i386 is needed by (installed) chromium-0.9.12-24.i386 is needed by (installed) xawtv-3.88-6.i386 is needed by (installed) xtraceroute-0.9.1-3.i386 is needed by (installed) winex3-3.3.1-1.i386 is needed by (installed) redhat-lsb-1.3-4.i386 is needed by (installed) gstreamer-

Now my question:
Can I delete the old one with rpm -e --force without destroying xorg and
all the other above listed rpms?
Or shall i update using rpm rpm -Uh --nodeps
I think i can remove the old and install the new driver because the new
old *should* install a new but I'm not sure.
And I do not want to destroy xorg or any other packet ;)
