Lets see... I'm Vietnam era (US Army) and I don't recall any such vga
driver during the years I was in Vietnam.

If you stopped to consider that the OP most likely upgraded from a
previous Ubuntu version to 11.04 you'd realise that he will most likely
have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe file such as this one:

$ cat xorg.conf.failsafe
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
	Driver		"vesa"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
	Device		"Configured Video Device"

If he installed 11.04 clean then he won't have *any* xorg.conf* files in

So let me google that for you... ah yes, let's go back in time:
