    Hardy display problem on Dell Latitude D600

    HI Gurus,

    I am first time user of Ubuntu. I am trying to install Hardy on my Dell Latitude D600 machine. I am not able to install ATI display driver on this. I have tried number of ways defined on net but nothing seems to work. fglrxinfo always return mesa driver. Whenever I do changes as defined on net to my xorg.conf file and reboot I always get a message about running non optimal mode. It complains that device is not proper.
    My machine has ATI MObility Radeon 9000 card.

    Can anyone please help ?? I want to run compize on it and really want to stick with ubuntu.

    Thanks a ton

    Here is exact output

    Your graphic card has been detected as a ATI Mobility / Radeon 9000
    Your graphic card is supported by the legacy Driver
    EnvyNG Error: ATI's legacy driver does not support your operating system
