Thanks, I'll take a look when I have more than 30 seconds to spare.
(That reminds me.  I was pleased that my Wacom "just worked", sensitivity
and everything, when I installed 10.10 from scratch.  That was a nice bonus :)

As Brian mentioned, it's an integrated Intel in this Dell Inspiron 1525.
Specifically, lspci shows:

  Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)

PS - I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.10 to KDE 4.6 yesterday
(via backport mentioned here: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-sc-4.6 ),
and today I had to do this to get my display to work right:


Things were not updating unless I forced them to fully refresh
(alt+tab, cover/expose, wiggle mouse, etc.).  Very hard to use my
computer. :)

So I'm not even using precisely the same video driver as I was when I posted
yesterday.  Fun :^P
