fglrx driver in debian squeeze in limbo - any ideas?

This sucks. Stupid closed source drivers cause such problems. Any
workaround I can do?

I need to build the fglrx driver for debian squeeze (ati radeon hd
4550 card), but I just saw this bug
saying the packages have been removed from testing due to a conflict
with the x.org transition.

The packages referred to here: http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary
such as "fglrx-control" and "fglrx-driver" are no longer available so
what should I do?

I don't know when the x.org transition will be finished and I really
want 3D acceleration so I can play my games :(

So for now I must use the open source radeon driver which cannot do 3D :(
