you card is supported (partially at least) by Xfree86-3.1.1 release.
Debian doesn't have this release in stable. I would suggest you
to install debian packages for xserver-svga and -vga16, download
only SVGA server from xfree86 site and copy it over existing server
installed by debian package in /usr/X11R6/bin/. Fire up XF86Setup
and configure the server for your card.

Goos luck.
