I use Debian Woody, and i did:

$modprobe

I inserted the drm module for direct rendering and i suppose agpart.

I modified a bit XF86Config-4 ( as in page 1 i suppose ).

I restarted x.

Now my radeon 7000 sdr 64 works better. With glxgears i obtain, @ 1024x768 16 bit per pixel, a frame rate of 494 ( is it good??? For 3 gears i don't think.. )
