ati command when installing ATI.lzm
Copy the ati.lzm module to your directory root ("cd /") then "tar -zxvf ati.lzm" - then run the .sh file that is placed in the newly created /install directory by typing "sh install/doinst.sh". After that you should be able to load up X by using the ati command which will configure /etc/X11/xorg.conf to work properly so you can then after use your preferred method to run X.
Should something happen when I type "sh install/doinst.sh" after typing "tar -zxvf ati.lzm". Additionally, what does the instructions mean by using the ati command. What is the ati command?
the command you refer to is "aticonfig"
if you type this without the quotes you will see example set up commands such as --
aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
