i've procede to the compiz check , and ihave got that result:

Distribution: Ubuntu 9.04
Desktop environment: GNOME
Graphics chip: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN700/P4M800 Pro/P4M800 CE/VN800 [S3 UniChrome Pro] (rev 01)
Driver in use: openchrome
Rendering method: AIGLX

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]

Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

At least one check had to be skipped:
Error: openchrome driver in use

I believe the older S3 chips are only 2D.

I second that VIA chisp dont play well with Linux. I would go with eithere ATI or Nvidia.
