radeon 2400 HD in Ubuntu driver issues

Okay, well, basically I loaded ubuntu 9.04 on a machine and everything works great except video.  The install gives me the option to go to the proprietary driver to enable acceleration, but when I use that driver login takes forever and then my second monitor freaks out and flashes constantly, locking 1 core on the cpu into some sort of loop.  I tried using Envy to install a different driver, only 1 of which was seen as compatible and recommended, but that produced the same results.  

Fairly new to Linux, so I might be missing something.  Any suggestions?

All I can suggest is to try this one.

I don't have the parts to test it out for you.

Okay, I have installed the package.  Like I said, though, I am fairly new to Linux.  How do I ensure that this driver is the one being used rather than either the proprietary FGLRX or the ATI 8.600-0ubuntu2 that Envy installed?

New driver came out on ATI that took care of the problem.
