Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn Inspiron 6400

I finally got around to loading Ubuntu Fiesty on my lap top.  The installation was not at all painless.   X would not start when I loaded the live CD, so I had to download and used the alternative install CD with the text installer.  The live CD for Edgy worked fine and it was using the VESA X driver so it should have worked just fine with my ATI 1300.  After I got the OS installed X still did not work.  After installing fglrx driver X started to work.  The built in compiz 3D desktop doesn’t work as compositing is not support in the fglrx driver.  I will install the latest Beryl RC and see how that goes.  Other than that everything seems to work except my wireless which has never worked.  I may have to get an add on card as I need native wireless support to use kismet not the ndis wrappered windows driver.
