Gave it a run.. It completely destroyed Gnome, I couldn't open anything or even restart.
I'm starting to lose hope. It seems there's just no way to get the ATI x1900 to work on Ubuntu 9.10. None of the drivers I tried have worked.
The closest I got was getting the correct resolution to show up on my two monitors but w/o hardware acceleration. However, this was on a completely fresh install -- once I ran the updates, it broke X and nothing would work.
The odd thing is, if I disable my second monitor, it seems to work okay.
