What does lspci say about your Rage 128?  (You're looking for the device
type; mine says

  01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 5446

If yours is device 5446, you can get it to work with XFree86 4.1 (the
version in unstable).  I'm happy with mine (though I will admit I
don't do anything fancy like 3d or GL).
