Exclamation Need help with ATI's graphics driver installer

OK, so I've managed to compile my kernel update (2.6.16.1 ), but now I'm having trouble installing ATI's graphics driver on my Debian sarge box. I keep getting an error message exactly like what this guy describes. Now I'm not using the same install method as he is, I'm doing this. Not sure what to do at this point; been banging my head against the wall for a few days now, any suggestions? I'd appreciate ANY help I can get
Why in the hell can't ATI just release drivers for Debian anyways? sheesh

What's in /etc/apt/sources.list?

Can you post the error directly to this forum instead of attaching a file? Then it's easier for us.

Ok finally figured out how to post a file using lynx, this
is the error i get using ati's driver installer. I am
running an amd athlon 64 on Debian 3.1 Sarge with kernel
2.6.16.1 I think the problem has to do with this damn
installer supporting only SUSE and redhat, something I
read somewhere about the installer trying to install 32
libraries on my 64 bit OS. Not sure about that really.

ok here it is
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://mirror.espri.arizona.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://mirror.espri.arizona.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ stable main

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
Looks pretty small to me, not sure what else i should add in here.

Well
Code:
 which ldd
returns /usr/bin/ldd
and
Code:
 ls -la /lib/ld-linux.so.2
retruns no such file or directory

In my /lib directory, there is an ld-2.3.2.so file and just below it is a link file ld -linux-x86_64.so.2 -> ld-2.3.2.so
