Yeah- looking through some of the screensavers, I noticed they were still having some framerate issues.

Well, way back on page 2, I posted:

and on the board, I found the model number 'K8S LA'.

From what I can tell on the ASUS website, they never created such a board or have drivers/BIOS/anything on it (it seems to be an HP/Compaq specific board ). However, there is a similar K8S MX board. I'm going to head over to their forums after I post this to see whats going on.
I upgraded it at that time to whatever was newest. I can get you my current version soon (and I'll also look for another upgrade), but I simply don't have the time to do it now.

I'm still quite new to Ubuntu and Linux in general. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of support for upgrading to the 2.6.15 kernel in Breezy (5.10), and I'd rather not, if it can be avoided. Dapper, the next version, I believe will have the 2.6.15 kernel.
