I see the final date is April 2010. Not that far away. But as soon as it is out of Alpha and on Beta I will move up.

Here is my problems:
1. I am a Ubuntu Newbee with very little knowledge
2. I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed and want to upgrade to 9.10
3. My Video card is not supported in 9.10 until now
4. I don't know if I should upgrade to 9.10 first or install ATI driver first
5. I don't know any of the terminal commands to install the 9.10 ATI driver

So basically I need step by step instructions including all terminal commands and steps to get a working 9.10, the driver I downloaded is called "ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run" which I understand is for my 32bit system which is a Dell E510.

i may be wrong about this, but if your running a 32bit system you shouldnt install the 64bit driver. ? what processor do you have?

I have a P4 3.0Ghz processor. But I was led to believe that is the drover for both 32 & 64. If I am wrong please send me to the correct one.
