Some of you guys may remember a little while back that I had a problem with video corruption with my ATI radeon x1270. I have since reinstalled ubuntu along side windows XP (for light gaming) and now the video corruption is back. I managed to find a thread on how to fix the problem here http://www.gatewaynetbooks.com/index.php/forum/5-linux/2126-ubuntu-1004-video-corruption-on-lt31 . So I tried the solution posted and the terminal spat back a command that said "permission denied", so I opened up the file manager and went to the location in the command and there is no radeon-kms.conf file to be found. How would I get this file created? How would I gain access to the file and change the kms modeset to 0?

Broken link, could you post the commands so I can have a look at them.
