I found this page, but it doesn't seem to address actually installing anything, just configuration and whether you can use some unmentioned tool or not. I tried doing a software update, the hardware drivers application does nothing, and I'm thinking the easiest thing to do might be just to back up my home folder and reinstall. Is this the best way to do this?

Instead of fighting with the ATI proprietary drivers (could never get them installed and working correctly), open the Ubuntu Software Center and search for "x.org ati". Works a charm for Radeon boards.
