    problems with graphic card

    I have a ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage LT Pro AGP-133 (rev dc) graphic card and would like to be able to use it. IN my search for trying to get it to work with compiz or just at all i found compiz-check. Compiz-check said that everything was OK but i did not think my dri was enabled. so i found a thread that i thought might work. I followed the process and it did not help now i cant even use the card without using a resolution of 600X600 which is way to small. is it possible to use the card at a higher resolution like 1024 x 768 also when the screens saver come on there is a box with for white stripes and now compiz-check says this
    tatoniss@Eric-desktop:~$ ./compiz-check

    they used to all say ok

    Here is the instructions i followed
    sudo echo "activating sudo rights"
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    sudo apt-get install autoconf-archive xorg-dev  git-core libdrm-dev mesa-common-dev
    cd $SRCPATH 
    if [ -d 'src' ]; then echo -n ""; else mkdir src ; fi
    cd src
    git clone git:// ;
    cd drm/linux-core
    make DRM_MODULES="mach64" 
    if [ -f mach64.ko ] ; then echo -e "\nSuccess\n" ; \
    sudo cp *.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/drm/;  \
    sudo depmod -a; \
    sudo modprobe mach64; \
    if [ -f 'xf86-video-ati-$DRIVER_VS.tar.bz2' ]; then echo "already have xf86-video-ati"; else \
    	wget$DRIVER_VS.tar.bz2 ;     \
    	tar xvjf xf86-video-ati-$DRIVER_VS.tar.bz2  ;\
    cd xf86-video-ati-$DRIVER_VS
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make clean
    sudo make install
    cd $SRCPATH/
    echo -e "\nsudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart\n"
    Or is there a way to fix this
