Unhappy ATI Radeon Direct Rendering

I am running a stage 1 install of Gentoo 2004.0 with a standard 2.4.6 kernel. I can't get Direct Rendering to work with my ATI Radeon 8500. I use XFree86 4.3 and I used emerge ati-drivers and ati-drivers-extra.

Kernel settings:
AGPGART - Module
module support for my AMD chipset
no framebuffer
DRM - compiled in (because I can't use emerge xfree-drm with a 2.6.4 kernel?)
ATI radeon support

It looks like the DRIScreenInit fails in my XFree86 log....what does that mean??

I've included my glxinfo, dmesg, and XFree86 log ouputs....
I'm fairly new at this linux stuff....but i've tried EVERYTHING to get DRI working.....

uname -a
Linux evilinside 2.6.4 #1 SMP Sat Mar 27 15:08:24 EST 2004 i686 AMD Athlon(TM) MP 2000+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

dmesg output: www .benchodroff .com/dmesglog
glxinfo output: www .benchodroff .com/glxinfolog
kernel config: www .benchodroff .com/kernelconfig
XFree86 log: www .benchodroff .com/XFree86.0.log

(remove the spaces...thanks)
If you can help me, I'd really appreciate it!
