Which video driver

The Inspiron 1525n _only_ ships with one video option and that is the
onboard Intel 965GM controller. As stated in my earlier post, it will
need the "xserver-xorg-video-intel" driver to render 3D acceleration, do
compiz-fusion etc.

It depends on your hardware... NVidea seems to be the best supported,
ATI second (if you're lucky in your card selection, my current ATI card
is very hard to get working correctly).

If you have have an NVidea or ATI card just go to
http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html and install EnvyNG. It can
get most configurations working (if it will work at all).

This is one of those areas where windows is still better than Linux...
but I have faith that will change ;-)
