Q: When I go to remove the linux-restricted-modules-$(uname -r) ubuntu tries to install them along with a couple dependencies before it then removes one of the 3 different packages it installs. Should I just not install them at all or allow it to install the dependencies because they are needed for the newer version to work?

A: You should not need the linux-restricted-modules packages at all unless it contains specfic drivers that you require, excluding fglrx of course. The important thing is to make sure the there is only one fglrx.ko kernel module under /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ This is the sole reason for removing the linux-restricted-modules package, as it will copy a new fglrx.ko into your modules directory on each boot.
