Radeon 7500 driver

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone on this site would know where I can get a driver for a radeon 7500. I have not been able to find one anywhere.

Does anybody know if updating XFree86 will solve the problem or anyway at all that I can get this solved, its a test machine in work that this will have to be done on so I really have to get this done. It has been done before so I know that it is possible
Thanks in advance

I am not sure if theyre full drivers or if theyre just for the 3d acceleration part but those are what you would probably be wanting to get since ATI doesnt do drivers for anything lower than a 8000 I think. I have those drivers on with my radeon7000ve and rageLTpro. they work great - and also give a substantial increase in card performance.
