I can't find the package "fglrxinfo" for Kubuntu Feisty.  I don't know if it's 
applicable as my Dell Dimension 2350 uses an Intel 82845G on-board graphics 

I can't find any references to problems with this board and assume that compiz 
will work.  If anyone knows anything about this issue, please post to this 
list or e-mail me directly at "tilleyrw at".

Thanks, Bob
