Radeon 7000 firegl and 3d acceleration


I've gone through gentoo forums as well as linuxquestions.org, but have not been able to get 3d rendering to work under gentoo gaming sources.
Gentoo has an ati faq as well as a direct rendering with xfree drm docs. Somehow (I must have left dri and glx in xfree86config) I had software rendering on. Wolfenstein et took like minutes to load, and was unplayable.
I have since tinkered around, now I cannot get glx gears to start.

here's the output of glxinfo
bash-2.05b# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Does anyone know which version of fire gl to install for an r100 chipset. Can I make my game playable with xfree-drm? Or do I need the closed source drivers?

here are snipets from my XF86Config file:
Section "Module"
Load "record"
Load "extmod"
Load "dbe"

Load "xtrap"
Load "type1"
Load "speedo"
EndSection
Section "Device"

### Available Driver options are:-
### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
### [arg]: arg optional
#Option "NoAccel" # [<bool>]
#Option "SWcursor" # [<bool>]
#Option "Dac6Bit" # [<bool>]
#Option "Dac8Bit" # [<bool>]
#Option "ForcePCIMode" # [<bool>]
#Option "CPPIOMode" # [<bool>]
#Option "CPusecTimeout" # <i>

#Option "MonitorLayout" # [<str>]
#Option "IgnoreEDID" # [<bool>]
#Option "OverlayOnCRTC2" # [<bool>]
#Option "CloneMode" # [<str>]
#Option "CloneHSync" # [<str>]
#Option "CloneVRefresh" # [<str>]
#Option "UseFBDev" # [<bool>]
#Option "VideoKey" # <i>
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "radeon"
VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName "Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

I've compiled my kernel according to the ati faq on the gentoo site. I've emerged xfree-drm repeatedly to try to get it to work.

I downloaded probably the wrong version of firegl, ran ffglrxconfig . It wouldn't work so I overwrote the XF86Config-4 with my old XF86Config.

One addition: during boot up I get a message saying "failed to load module radeon.
here's the output of lsmod:
