fglrx question



Greetings;

Warning, fglrx newbie here.  I've been running the kernels radeon drivers 
for the last 3 years since my last nvidia card took a crap and took the 
motherboard with it.

I've downloaded and installed the current ati drivers for my third party 
(VisionTek I think) ati 9200SE 128mb card.

Unforch, its running at about 1/4 the speed I can get from the kernels 
radeon drivers.

kernel is 2.6.20-ck1, ati-agp and nvidia-agp are compiled in but this made 
no difference.  There is also an ati-agp module loaded according to 
lsmod.

DRM and DRI refuse to initialize.  So the Xorg.0.log has this:
-----------------------

The question is what kernel module?

The /etc/X11/xorg.conf was generated with 'aticonfig --initial' from a tty 
console.  I've added drm and ati-agp to the Load Modules section, no 
difference.

The gzipped .config for this kernel is attached.

What else would it be helpfull to post in an attempt to troubleshoot this?
