well..sure 10.10fixed the Python issue but my second video card refused to show up. Lots of re-installing, re-formating and re-installing, cursing, scouring the internet for answers i found the solution.

It was hard because finding information on a linux issue is a pain. It seems everyones install is different and everyones opinions are unflappable. My machine did not give me the error in the kern.log that would have pointed right to the issue. Apparently the 32bit ubuntu's have a glitch where by it doesn't allocate enough memory at boot up to initialize the second card. Adding a kernel parameter to the boot up command fixes it (vmalloc-256M). What is odd about it is that version 9.X works out of the box, my install was an upgrade from 9 and i never saw this issue. Even when i installed 9 and upgraded this time, i still got the issue....

Either way its fixed...mostly...i am having to edit my grub menu.lst to add the pram because the directions for adding this pram permanently doesn't match the file structure in my system. It is likely the reason for that is my version of grub is old...but it works so whatever.
