Ok, more newbie questions. ;-)

I recommend getting it from a ppa.
What is a ppa and where do I find one?
side note: from your grammar I would never have know that English was a 2nd language for you. ;-)
I am assuming that this is a ppa,
I thought launchpad was a paid service?
Sorry for not checking earlier whether your GPU is supported. I thought it was, but I don't know the whole list by heart.
Shame on me as well. I knew I needed 180.51 from reading the threads. BUT the module names just say 180 and you have to dig deeper to see which version of 180. I foolishly assumed [and we know what that means ;-)] that the version being pushed down was the latest one. So my bad as well.
OK, so once I download it what do I do next?
fyi I tried the manual install from the .run file and it also failed complaining about missing files that synaptic says are there. :-(
