Getting reasonable 2D performance for things like scrolling doesn't
need DRI and/or AGP, you just need an X server that knows how to drive
the rage 128 chip.  I'm using XFree86 4.1.0 (from debian unstable) on
my Ti powerbook and it works just fine.  I can send you my
XF86Config-4 if you like (you would need to tweak it a little for a
pismo) or you could ask Ben Herrenschmidt for the config he uses on
his pismo.
