Re: 8.04 on VMware won't recognize video card

When it comes to your "native" installed Ubuntu there is ways to get the ATI working fine. There is loads of guides here on the forum. The search function is good for finding such things.
ATI installation guides, extra info, etc.
PS. This is good sources for new startes.
