jaunty jackalope Ubuntu 9.04 compiz blacklists my video card

I have a Dell Vostro 1310, with I believe, the intel 965 chipset. The video card was working fine with Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 with compiz, but when I upgraded to Jaunty, the card was blacklisted. Don't know why, this link says some crap about video freezes etc.. I've never had any.. But it says to add the line:
to the compiz-manager file
This will remove the blacklisting check, and allow the card to render compiz effects..

Also make sure you have the CompizConfig Settings Manager package installed for tuning your compiz desktop.
