I have a Gateway 9300 with 'ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage P/M Mobility
AGP 2x (rev 64)' video card, and I do not observe the issues you
mention. I run X in 16-bit 1024x768 happily.

Which version of XFree86 do you have installed?

These are caused by the XF86config file referring to modes that are not
defined or cannot be used with the current chipset. No need to worry
about them.

That might help, at least if you send it to me. Then I could tell you if
there are any *major* differences between your configuration and mine...
