Has anyone used the AMD Vision graphics hardware with Ubuntu or Mint? I recently purchased a Toshiba laptop with the Vision hardware, but now neither the Ubuntu or Mint live CDs will run on it. Has anyone used this hardware and is there a possible work around for it?

I have the same problem. I finally installed the OS using nomodeset (available by pressing F6 on the boot menu of the liveCD, with the other option) but I get a black screen on startx boot.
A friend of mine found a sidekick by playing with his economy mode button and starting only on battery, if it helps. Took him a year to get the driver.
Good luck, and post if you have any news.
