Well, same problem here. I have an IBM ThinkPad A31, which uses the same 
graphic card. The card is a ATI Radeon 7500 Mobility. I upgraded XFree86 to 
4.2.1 (on sarge), and 2D accelleration is ok, and it works with the dafault 
resouloution and color depth. But though in XFree86's documentation it is 
written that 3D accelleration is provided for Radeon 7500, it seems it 
doesn't work here. From time to time, I wonder if Radeon 7500 is the same as 
7500 Mobility. I mean if XFree86 claims that their driver supports 3D 
accelleration for 7500, does that mean 3D acceleration is also provided for 
7500 Mobility? Or are these diffrent from each other?
