    The only working driver for the HD3200 under 12.10 is the open source already installed, it's built into the kernel.

    ATI dropped support for all of the 2/3/4xxx series over the summer, and no longer write their own drivers for them.

    Are there any drivers listed for your card in Software Sources > Additional Drivers ? I am not clear on how you are trying to install the driver.
