i have personally had some problems with the 64 bit version of Kubuntu with FFXI. I will try to install the 64 bit version in the near future, but my memory is poor, so dont count on it. A more immediate fix might be to try out the i386 version and see if that works. as for the ATI card, i have seen problems in the past, but have not tested WINE 1.1.21 with it, the only problems i had were some effects causing the screen to blank out for a bit.
are you using 1.1.2 or 1.1.20? i have had some problems loading with 1.1.20, i have not tried 1.1.2.
make sure to download the latest proprietary drivers for your card and activate them
K menu > Applications > System > hardware drivers3
i hope this helps.
