Two points: one, this guys website is inconsistent.  Those are the 3.2.5 
drivers (check the readme) regardless of what the HTML says.

Second, couple months back, this guy had later drivers than ATI's site 
did (in particular support for 2.6).  Sounds like the official drivers 
passed him!

For most of the past year that site had later drivers than the official.  
Anyway, I found them with google: "linux and fglrx".  If you google 
"debian fglrx" you'll find a guy in Italy who's packaged them for 
Debian.  You can hack together his scripts to package these as well.
