suggest you read:
you have to be careful (you have to reload the drivers if you [automatically] update ther kernel) I mention this in my post #150.

While the above is for Suse rather than Debian the basic premises apply.

Without knowing what processor, whether 32-bit or 64-bit, and the exact ati graphics card you have, it is difficult to advise you further, at this stage.

I also suggest you go to the LQ-Debian forum, where very similar threads exist, and are being more specifically answered today.
