It works great, this is what you have to do:

1. install xorg-driver-fglrx (you already did this...)
2. install linux-restricted-modules (contains the fglrx kernel
3. make a backup of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (in case of...)
4. start  fglrxconfig at the shell, and go through the config. This
will generate an XFREE86CONFIG file (ati are not ready here yet...never

(the mouse, keyboard, etc.. are not important here as you will not use
this generated XFree file (you can use it if you tweek the keyboard
drivers, etc.... but it is much easier to copy the device section to
your old xorg.conf file).

5. copy Section "Device" from the generated file to your xorg.conf
file, and comment the old device section out.

-> you are set to go.
