I'm using fglrx with my nx9600 laptop.  Here's my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility X600 (M24)"
        Driver          "fglrx"
        Option          "UseInternalAGPART"     "no"
        BusID           "PCI:1:0:0"

Let me know if you want more info.  I had to experiment with a few 
packages to install too.
