ATI Mobility Radeon 9000/9100 IGP drivers (i have no 3D acceleration)

Hello friends of linux!
I'm a new linux user and i have experienced a problem with the graphics card. I installed linux recently on my laptop and thew away to the garbage all the disqusting Microsoft products.I have Ubuntu 6.10 distribution on a HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop. The problem is that the system recognises no 3D acceleration. I called the other day a friend of mine for assistance (he is an expert linux user) but nothing seemed to work. Has anyone experienced the same problem as i have? Please if you have any ideas do help me!
Thanks in advance!

PS. Also when i put the laptop in suspend mode it crashes and it never comes back to normal function (in other words suspend mode doesnt work correctly)

In general you can follow this guide for fglrx driver:

suspend mode is another story. Check out
for similar models. I would recommend you (with your friends assistance) to try it is pretty stable and has more success rate than the in-kernel suspend.

Thanks for the advises. I followed the instructions written in : but it didn't work. I also experienced problems with the sound (i couldn't control sound) so i reinstalled fglrx with the same no-3D results...
