The current ATI-drivers are simply not supporting such an old card. You have no other choice than using the free radeon-driver that is installed in a default Ubuntu installation.

That means delete Linux and use Windows or get a new card.

Why do you need the ati drivers? The free drivers should work fine for desktop use.

The older versions of the ATI drivers wont work, and you cant really go back to older versions of ubuntu (8.04 which will work with the ATI drivers is just about to lose support, all other versions that have any suport for the 9600 are out of support)

You might be best to add a PPA for the newest free radeon drivers (it can make a difference) and gallium 3D should make gaming a lot better.

Add this to your software sources-

ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa

Then update, that should get you the newest free radeon driver.
