Trying to get 4870 working with Fedora 7 and CAL

Is it possible to use Fedora 7 to host a 4870 card for CAL evaluation?  I've got the card installed.  I've got Catalyst 8.9 installed.  I can see the fglrx module is loaded with lsmod.  The card produces video output.  But when I try to run:

    /usr/local/amdcal/samples/tutorial/OpenCloseDevice/OpenCloseDevice

I get the following:

    Opening Device : 0

        There was an error opening device 0.

Suggestions?
