According to the supported hardware table the ATI driver you should be using is already installed and used by default in Ubuntu 11.10.

Your card, the ATI X1300 uses the RV505 chipset, which according to the table, is supported by the catalyst legacy or open-source drivers.

Since the first cannot be installed in Ubuntu 11.10 unless you are able to install and use a kernel version 2.6.28 (or earlier) you are only able to use the second and that is already installed in your system.
