If you've got separate x servers, you're probably running x 3.3.6.  To
my knowledge, this doesn't support your card.  4.x does, and is the
default install in sid and i believe woody.  I believe debs are
available for potato if you need to use it.  Anyway, your problem boils
down to the version of your X... its too old.
