Do you have radeonfb working? If so, I want to see your .config. :)

The radeon DRM should work out of the box in any recent 2.5/2.6 kernel,
the lack of agpgart may be a problem on some machines though. It's hard
to say exactly what's the cause of your problems without knowing
anything about the version of XFree86, its configuration, ... but I'm
not sure that's really on topic for this list...
