It is no longer supported.

The current AMD driver [v13.1] ONLY supports Radeon HD 5000 series and 
above, with the legacy driver [v13.1 legacy] supporting older Radeon HD 
2000, HD 3000 or HD 4000 series cards (I assume yours is a 2000 series 
card) *BUT* the legacy driver does NOT support X server ABI 13 in the 
version of Xorg shipped with RHEL 6.4. So your card is not supported by 
AMD as the version of Xorg server in RHEL 6.4 is too new.
