I'm pretty sure they came with the distribution.  I know that there are some 
other ATI drivers out there which I'll try to download and install later.

I was using alt+F6 to boot into terminal mode, so I edited the xorg.conf file 
(and the /boot/grub/menu.1st file) that way.

That makes sense.  I've seen this issue reported several times, and it always 
had something to do with the video drivers.
