I have exactly the same problem, as everyone I guess.

(I had this message but the driver has been installed anyway, check if you have amd catalyst in your appication, the driver could be installed.)

What is sure is that the installation of the second driver which is proposed works (not the updated one) If you want the latest driver, you can also download id from amd, the installation works, it's graphic and simple:

linux ati catalyst driver

Try reinstalling it again using this guide Ubuntu Oneiric Installation Guide, is the most complete guide available to users of ATI and different linux's distributions.
