ati rage 128 pro gl and X server problem

I have a problem with my video card when trying to start the X server.
I have installed Debian Linux and the video card is ati rage 128 pro gl.

The /var/log/XFree86.0.log says:

(II) ATI: Candidate "Device" section "AtI RagE PrO GL".
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

The /etc/X11/XF86Config looks like this:

Section "Monitor"

Identifier "My Monitor"

HorizSync 31.5 - 35.1

VertRefresh 50-70


Section "Device"
Identifier "Standard VGA"
VendorName "Unknown"
BoardName "Unknown"
Driver "vga"
# BusID "PCI:0:10:0"
# VideoRam 256
# Clocks 25.2 28.3

# Device configured by xf86config:
Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Rage 128 Pro"
Chipset "ATI Rage 128 Pro PF (AGP)"
Driver "r128"
#VideoRam 16384
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "ATI Rage 128 Pro"
Monitor "My Monitor"
DefaultDepth 16

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
ViewPort 0 0
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
ViewPort 0 0
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
ViewPort 0 0

I've checked over and over again and I think that this configuration should work. Where am I wrong?
Thank you
