You could try this XF86Config-4 (it's for the R51, but it seems they both use the Radeon chip) http://www.dw-itsecurity.de/content/view/40/95. Incidentally, to see all of the warnings and errors that ocurred as X attempted to run, you could use the following (as root)
Code:
grep "WW\|EE" /var/log/XFree86.0.log
Cheers,

mj
