I have always used the built-in utility to install the driver for my video card (HD4570). Now running Ubuntu 11.04 as a live-cd and updating the repository - the utility does not show the available proprietary drivers.

Maybe I just need to install Ubuntu, or download driver from the video card manufacturer.

Your initial idea is correct, you need to install Ubuntu first, and then you can either wait for the Additional Drivers to prompt you or just ask it to install it for you.
