New ati driver problems

So i tried a fresh install of opensuse 11.0… did the updates, and when i used the one click install to install the ati drivers, now theres 3 linux options under grub. one just says opensuse, one says opensuse debug and one says opensuse failsafe. when i use the regular opensuse option the screen goes black and theres a stripe of random blue pixels when opensuse loads up. Right now i am under the debug option and fgl_glxgears as well as desktop effects all work. any ideas? (last time i got the drivers to work there was a KMP default option which is what i used… does that have anything to do with it? what is kmp?
