Cant install drivers
I need to install the drivers for my FX5700 for dual-display support or is there another way? Im running Debian (Kanotix). I tried to install and it says I need to be under root. How do I do that?

Too bad. I guess you don't want any help either since you're not including any error messages or info on what goes wrong.

Re: Cant install drivers
to switch from your current user to the 'root' user, open a terminal window and type 'su -'
You will be prompted to enter the password to switch from the current user to the root one.
Enter the password, and see the changes in your prompt! The usual $ has been replaced by the # meaning you are root.
