I'm pretty sure that rather than FB_ATY128 ("ATI Rage128 display support")
you would need FB_ATY ("ATI Mach64 display support") for that model.
That's what I remember from the last time I booted mine up. I have a
roughly equivalent model. However, I haven't tried a new kernel on
mine in quite some time. There have been complaints on the list in
recent years about various parts of the ATI mach64 support being broken.
