Default Ubuntu 8.04 and ATI HD4850 Video Card

I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a 2nd hard drive for my PC so I can chose to boot XP or Ubuntu. I do not see any video drivers on ATI's website for my video card (HD-4850)

The highest resolution I can select is 1024x768, my monitor is a 22" LCD, it native resolution is 1680x1050, so it looks like crap without any drivers installed. Is there any other drivers that I could try? Suggestions?
