Hi guys.
im a completely newb when it comes to ubuntu and im trying to install drivers for my video card.
All of the explanations i have found simply say to use a restricted driver by activating it in system|administration|hardware drivers, however when i open that all it says is "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system".

any help would be awesome.

Side note. im on ubuntu 8.04, 10.04 just black screens when i try to boot it. (havnt figured that out yet either).
