Xfree86-4.0.3 - iMac revA

I've just installed woody on an old Imac (one of the first one)

just to ask about something strange

whith the following Device section in XF86Config-4
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "ati"
        BusID       "PCI:0:18:0"

X starts correctly, BUT (yes there's a but) all the text is displayed in
a `kind of mirror' mode, ie all letter are reversed.
eg: I try to represent it
       __               __
|\  | |__|       |  /| |__|
| \ | | \     -> | / |  / |
|  \| |  \       |/  | /  |

while using the following Device section everything is OK
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "fbdev"
        Option      "UseFBDev"

	what I did wrong ??


NB here a some more details about the machine
running 2.4.5-pre3 Benh kernel

lpsci gives me
00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro
215GP (rev 5c)

part of dmesg

CF : les rouleaux à l'intérieur sont plus larges, j'imagine que ça doit
   : améliorer le contact avec la boule.
JMG: C'est vrai que c'est vachement plus agréable...
