can't get X to work on ibook

Hi.. I just got the new ibook (released in Nov) which has the ATI Radeon
7500 32MB card (12.1" screen). I've seen some posts on this list from
others who haven't been able to get this card to work properly but have
been able to get X to work.. I can't even get to that point
unfortunately.. this is the error that I get when I do startx:

(WW) ATI:  PCI/AGP Mach64 in slot 0:16:0 could not be detected!
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

The 0:16:0 setting was the default that was offered during the install
so I assumed it was right.. is this the problem (one of the problems)?

I'm new to Debian and to the ibook (have been using Redhat/Mandrake for
a while on PCs) so I'd really appreciate any help on this. I was
following the instructions on the web... Regarding X, one of the
instructions said that I have to get a new xfree86 but since I can't get
a working X, I'm unable to do anything right now..
