I recently helped a friend set Debian up on such a machine, and we got
it to work with the fbdev driver. Now I doubt we'd have settled for
depth 8, so have you tried all depth/bpp combinations, in particular
depth 24, fbbpp 24?
Or 'i can only get it to work with 8bit color' do you mean the X server
doesn't start for other depths? In that case I'd suspect you're running
OFfb, try radeonfb.
