If it's *really* slow you're probably using the openfirmware frame
buffer.  I've had a powerbook gigibit and currently a powerbook DVI;
using radeonfb for X was actually zippy.   If you want 3D support,
you'll need to grab the latest DRI trunk and re-compile your kernel to
*exclude* DRM (you need a newer module).  The process has been described 
many times on this list, check the archives.
