We have the free drivers in the following PPA
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
Please let it be known the packages in this repo are not
"stable" and may not work.
Had to add that so people dont blame me when they fail
to work :).
I have nothing to do with those packages other than a user

Crap i lost the gaming mailing list email can someone please
forward this to that list.
