xfree86-dri missing on display

Well first with the details.

Graphics card: Radeon 9700 Pro
Distor version: Ubuntu 7.10
Kernel version: 2.6.22
ATI restricted Drivers: Installed (Installed by Ubuntu...not the ATI distributed driver.)

I get this error whenever I try to run 3d accelerated programs. Here is the output from many of the programs I try to run:

Neverwinter Nights:
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":1.0".
Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":1.0".

name of display: :1.0
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":1.0".
display: :1  screen: 0
I have tried to install the ATI drivers from their site but all my graphics slowed to a crawl. So that was a bust. I have tried many a few other idea on other sites with no fix... does anyone else have an ideas?

Thank you

/var/log/Xorg.0.log should contain the error.

Here is a list of Warnings and Errors I found. I know it has something to do with the 3D rendering (even though Compiz Fusion works fine) but I'm not sure how to fix it.

(WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic" does not exist.
	Entry deleted from font path.
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:3:0:1) found
(WW) fglrx(0): Only one display is connnected,so single mode is enabled
(WW) LoadModule: given non-canonical module name ""
(EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_20050727 failed (/usr/lib/dri/ undefined symbol: __driCreateNewScreen_20050727)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
I can post my xorg.conf if needed, but I think it's more of a driver issue. Only I don't know where to get a driver that works correctly.
