This question is an extension of another a few days ago: Video card not found

First I try to install Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop removing Windows XP Home Edition. Everything was nearly ok, just that graphic card wasn't found, so I try to update it. After that, I try to install Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop and still no graphic card found. After I try 11.10 Desktop, but still nothing and something that I don't know why, it never boot normaly from HD?! Booting from HD after all it comes with a purple screen with those options:

UBUNTU, UBUNTU RECOVERY MODE, MEMORY TEST and ONE MORE MEMORY TEST

UBUNTU 11.10 Desktop just can be boot from USB? Well all those re-install that I make was erasing and reinstall! My PC:

  • WINDOWS XP HOME
  • HARDWARE INFO:
  • BIOS VERSION: P4VM8 BIOS P1.30
  • PROCESSOR TYPE: INTEL(R) PENTIUM(R) 4CPU 2.66GHz
  • PROCESSOR SPEED: 2666MHz
  • GRAPHICS CHIPSET: ATI/Techologies inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO]
  • MICROCODE UPDATE: F29/2E
  • CACHE SIZE: 512KB

So now I just don't know how to fix it and what to do!
I want my PC to run only Ubuntu because it's nice, fast and better then all OS I tried.
