I just finished a fresh U5 (w/4M VRAM) install of Etch; kernel 2.6.15-1.  The 
ati Xorg 7.0 driver works without incident at 1024x768 in 24 bits.

After installing xserver.xorg, the generated xorg.conf file was good for ATI 
video.  It needed a keyboard touchup to use the correct map ("sun(type5)" 
instead of "sun") and I don't yet have Ctrl-Alt-Fn key switching among vts.  
It assumed a low performance monitor.

This is pretty good for a generated x*.conf file under Sparc, so I'd call this 
a success.

The three packages cited above all have the same versions in my installation.
