so is the manual install better than the additional driver version? as the additional driver one doesn't work very well with my HD5850

The manual installer is version 11.6 if you have downloaded the latest one from ATI's website. The Additional Drivers version is 11.4.
I have no experience with both versions but you can generally expect a newer version to be better.

The manual install is better, in that the graphics run smoothly (as they should!), only problem is that on my system the mouse gets stuck in the corner; I'm stuck with using the old version of the 2D driver. :(

Definitely use the latest if you can.

Are you sure that the latest 2D driver is installed correctly? I'm surprised that it's laggy with a 5850.
