Default 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.

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 The usual $ has been replaced by the # meaning you are root.
