Is it possible to use the Ati FireGL drivers with 2.6?

Check for instructions (and a patch) on www.rage3d.com, in the Linux forum. I got 3.2.8 to compile with those instructions. Initially, I had errors when starting kdm (and many other apps) that caused X to exit; the logs showed entries like "Can't register SecondaryColorxxxEXT." Fixed by removing /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so, which was not provided by the ATI drivers; libGL.so.1 was.

Also, you must be actively running the desired kernel to compile the module using ATI's script. Run the installation from a text-mode window with the modules radeon and radeonfb not loaded.

The ATI 3.7.0 driver works out of the box.  The open source
DRI drivers also work great.
