Radeon HD 2600 drivers periodically overwritten in OS X EFI block

I have Kubuntu 10.10 Desktop installed on a separate physical drive in an Intel Early 2008 Mac Pro (tower) with 10.6.5 as the host OS. OS X overwrites the Linux video drivers on a regular basis, leaving only text mode. I re-install the driver pkg, but after the next boot-up the problem is back. Hints? Thanks! -- JA

that doesn't make much sense. If Kubuntu is on a separate drive, why/how is OS X overwriting the drivers? Please show us your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from when you have this particular problem starting X.
