IIRC there has been rudimental accel support (screen to screen copies) for
Mach64 added recently, but I doubt the driver works on PPC, at least hardly
without the usual endianness/... problems.

But there is very good support for Macs with Rage128 (and Permedia, if there
are any? :), thanks to Kostas Gewrgiou and Kevin Kendricks.

Ask the Debian X maintainer, Branden Robinson...

Point your /etc/apt/sources.list at woody instead of potato, and do a

apt-get dist-upgrade
