Hi James, thanks for your response.
The honest answer is: I dunno. So I suppose that implies the stock

I've never had to install a video driver in Linux before (even back in
RedHat 4.0). Any pointer to where I can learn more about the good
drivers sounds like it would help my situation a great deal.
