So this thing has nothing to do with the instability of the OS? nothung to do 
with the randomized corrupt screen at start up before the Ubuntu welcome screen 
appears? I'm sorry but I'm kind of new at this things: what's happen to the 
performance of the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 with the Gart being limited to that 
I've just get to this site from here
