    SOL w/ATI Radeon 9550 & Ubu 10.04?

    From looking at beaucoup posts, it appears I'm SOL trying to use the Linux drivers provided by AMD (See http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...2&lang=English
    terminal command line "sh ./ati-driver-installer-9.2-x86.x86_64.run". Since I keep getting an error message saying the file can't be opened either as root or using sudo I guess there's no reason to continue.
    Anyway, I have my PC displaying on a CRT thru a s-video connection. The screen is overscanned, that is, part of both the left and right sides are not visible. That is why I wanted to load the Radeon drivers & Catalyst Control Center so I could shrink the screen width.
    Question: Should I keep trying to open the ATI file? SHould I install the Open Source ATI driver? Should I give up and try to find a nVidia AGP 8X card?
