    .RUN file should be binary (and so compiled) already, so you can execute it immediatelly. Let's say you have ati-driver.RUN in /home/vrgn86/ directory..

    Start your terminal emulator / command line and run the following commands:
    Code:
    cd /home/vrgn86/
    ./ati-driver.RUN
    Note the dot and slash before ati-driver.RUN.

    Thank you! I was able to run the file, However it said I had to run it as A Super User??? Did a search for that but did not find info. Will continue to search this. Please bear with me, I am new to this and willing to learn. Thank you again.

    Oh ye, forgot to say you need to run it as root (super user):
    Code:
    sudo ./ati-driver.run
    However, apparently Ubuntu requires some other steps too to install the drivers properly. Here's some installation help for few Ubuntu versions:
