Why something so *y old? Debian Stable is so rotted-out it'd*a

Your X is so old that it doesn't have an X server that'll work with that
video card. Support for this card wasn't added until 4.2.0 or so.
Current XFree86 is 4.3.0, current Xorg is 4.4.0, either one will work,
but you'll have to upgrade your X. Use Debian Testing instead; you'll
really appreciate having software that was made sometime in the last
year, since KDE's improved by leaps and bounds since KDE 2, it's really
nice to be able to use most USB devices with kerel 2.4, and X 4.n
performs much better than X 3.3.6. HTH,
