Commenting on just one part of your report: In Ubuntu 6.10, which uses X.org
7.1, the driver-ati most probably does not recognize your X800 GTO (bug 6796)
without specifying Driver "radeon", and the stupid usplash doesn't let you see
the blue X.org screen telling that. Also, only 2.6.20 kernel has the fix in
radeon drm driver that allows anything on my X800 GTO to work regarding 3D.
Regarding Ubuntu, you should try
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/feisty/herd-3/ that both has 2.6.20 kernel
and the patch to bug 6796 appended on top of 6.6.2 driver
xserver-xorg-video-ati driver. Working on my X800 GTO just fine in 64-bit,
including 3D. Naturally, your system configuration might be otherwise

X800 GTO:s are actually partly rebranded X850 Pro:s with some pipelines
disabled or something like that.
