I believe you mean HD 5450 from the HD 5xxx family (R800s)?

In case you haven't been following the news,

"A little over a week ago, the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS repository picked up the 
Catalyst 10.4 driver. The currently available Catalyst 10.3 driver does 
not support the X.Org 1.7.5 Server used by Ubuntu Lucid, so once again 
(for the fourth release in a row), AMD had to supply Canonical with an 
early build of the Catalyst 10.4 driver that will be officially released 
in April. The Catalyst 10.4 driver supports the newer X.Org Server and 
is compatible with the Linux 2.6.32 kernel used by the 10.04 LTS 
release. The availability of this driver paved the way for us to finally 
perform a recent comparison of the newest Mesa code to the Catalyst driver."

That should calm your fears, although proprietary at least you will have 
some thing to fall back to. ;)
