I am just installed Ubuntu 7.10 and goin to upgrade to 8.04 soon. I am wonder if I need to install the graphic card. If I have to, how or where do I go to find out?

If you do an upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04, you shouldn't have to reinstall the graphics driver--although if something weird happens, you may. If you do a clean install of 8.04 in the place of your 7.10 system, then you would need to reinstall the ATI driver. Probably the easiest way to do it is to use envy (http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html); give it a try and if it doesn't work, let us know and we can do it another way.
