No joy with ATI 200m laptop

Well, I'm trying to get the ATI drivers in my HP dv8000 laptop with the ATI 200m card to work. I think I downloaded everything fine from the livna repos, and I downloaded beryl and I can get the beryl-manager to start, but it won't work.

Here's my xorg file:

# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Synaptics" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "fglrx"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "off"
EndSection


I had this working last week in Ubuntu and wanted to try it out in FC6, but I'm not having any luck. My xorg.conf file looked much different in Ubuntu. It actually listed my ATI 200m card there in the device section, but this is not happening here.

Here's the output of my glxinfo:

Here's the fglrxinfo:

[root@localhost ~]# fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)


I'm stumped here, but granted I'm not a linux guru, but I love to learn this stuff. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'd appreciate it.

Yeah, I got them working last week. Took some tweaking but here it is:

# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
