The fglrx driver itself is in the linux-restricted-modules.

So you'll have to find out your kernel version using:
uname -r

Then install the linux-restricted-modules for that kernel. Also install 

You can use apt-get, synaptic, adept or any of the package managers.

Then you'll have to change an entry in your /etx/X11/xorg.conf file.

There'll be an entry for the video device that will probably be set to 
ati that you will change to fglrx.

This is an overview off the top of my head. I believe there is a step by 
step page on the wiki.
