I think that the  "noaccel" option would have no effect on me, but then
again I might be wrong.

Not really. It has only recently been that ATI chips are includeed per
default in macs. A while ago, Apple used to produce and include its own
proprietary chips. That's why, there is no accelaration for these
(although they could support it theoritically).
