xorg.conf powerbook g4 kde 4.2.2

Hi there

Im really happy to have gotten a powerbook g4, was a PC user before. 
And lenny works great. No installation issues. Good work!
Maybe I should add that I encryted the whole system with the installer.

1. I havent worked on getting the wireless to go. Any Links to HOWTOs are 

2. Does anybody have a working xorg.conf for a powerbook g4 with ati 9700 

I cant enable Desktop effects on kde 4.2.2 :( If I enable effects the xserver 
freezes and so I cant even get into the console by alt-ctrl-f1. Turning the 
computer off is the only solution.

Direct Rendering worked out of the box, but I dont really know how to get 
compositing to work.

I also have a problem with the colours in kde. Some blue colours like the 
default K-Menu-symbol is some kind of orange :) 

I just changed the driver to radeon in xorg.conf yet. Oh, and I set UseFBdev 
to false after having a problem with weird fonts in tty1 when i stopped gdm. 

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "de"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "lv3:lwin_switch"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "radeon"
        BusID           "PCI:0:16:0"
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "false"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Monitor         "Configured Monitor"

3. Is it possible to scroll or right click without an external mouse on the 

Im thankful for every comment or links on this and the wireless installation.
