wrong link / file[edit]

The document says to get the driver (manual install) from http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run but the actual URL is http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run The file is amd-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run (starts with amd, not ati). This is seen in other places on this document.
