I used the tutorial on the redblog.
The .rpm's did no download into the working directory. Is there a way to wget these? or other methods?
if all went well, on an i386 target there should be ATI-fglrx-8.29.6-1.fc6.i386.rpm, ATI-fglrx-control-panel-8.29.6-1.fc6.i386.rpm, ATI-fglrx-devel-8.29.6-1.fc6.i386.rpm, and kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-KERNEL-VERSION.fc6-8.29.6-1.fc6.i386.rpm in the working directory. These RPMs can then be installed. During the RPM install process it will run aticonfig --initial, but if this is a fresh FC6 install one more step is needed. Ensure that the below segment is found in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, otherwise Mesa will be used when restarting X. If this portion is not found in your X configuration, add it:
