If you still run Slackware's default X.Org configuration you are still using the VESA driver.
Try downloading and installing Ati's proprietary display driver for your Radeon card, or try the ati driver that is available as part of the X.Org packages.
But I would advise to move to Slackware 12.1 instead - the ati drivers for X.Org have matured quite a bit between Slackware 12.0 and 12.1.
