Thanks for the info. I still can't get it to work though. I followed
your instructions and when I rebooted I got a smaller screen with lower
refresh rate, so something obviously happened (if not the right thing).
Moreover `fglrxinfo' shows:

$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)

According to the installation instructions from ATI, `OpenGL vendor
string' should not be Mesa if the driver is correctly installed. The
game Tux Racer is as slow as before and the mouse pointer is gone (in
the game). I then ran fglrxconfig, saved the XF86Config-4 file (should
really be named something like XorgConfig-4, right?) in /etc/X11 and
rebooted but it didn't solve the problem.

Any clues?
