ATI 9700 Driving Me to InsaNitY

P4 3.4 Prescott
1gig 3200 mem
AND A DANG ATI 9700 (M11) THAT I CAN'T GET TO WORK FOR ANYTHING!!!
Currently I'm running Sarge w/ kern 188.8.131.52 [compiled] and Xorg
6.8.[sic] [CVS compile]
I have tried nearly everything I can think of.

Nothing at all has worked. I have tried building drm as modules [kernel
config and CVS] and trying to preload them before x...(no luck here,
anyone know the secret?)
I have tried internal and ex agpgart....nada
I have tried almost every iteration of nearly all options that I could
think of (suffice to say I've been watching a lot of code crunchin
The most I have been able to juice out of this card is some really lame
2d accel with the old ati card driver, but it can't handle
transparencies and the other stuff I'm playing with.
