Well, googleearth isn't going to run well without direct rendering.
You'll probably need to install the proprietary driver for your card
in the restricted repositories.

Well, I had better luck with the one in the repositories (medibuntu I think).

I used to run it OK with 768, on a Debian Lenny system, with an Athlon
tbird. It ran passably well, but was a resource hog.
But that was with direct rendering and with an nvidia FX 5200. It was
practically unusable without direct rendering working, as I recall.
