Didn't help.

Well I assume either the driver just isn't optimized as well as it
could be or something with the way linux handles it. I suppose a more
powerful graphics card would solve the problem, but I don't have the
option of spending money just to change the OS. I've learned a little
more about linux, but I really don't have the time to keep working on
a solution for this one...when I can just continue with XP without
further work. Thanks for all your assistance Malcolm!
