Radeon 7500 is not supported in your version of X.
Search google for "radeon 7500 debian" or something like that.
the solution is adding "testing" or "unstable" to your
/etc/apt/sources.list, and then apt-get install xfree (it will install a
newer version than what you currently have)

step by step
1 - copy one line from /etc/apt/sources.list and replace the "stable" word
    with "testing"
2 - apt-get update [rebuilds apt list]
3 - apt-get install xfree (or xfree86, or xserver.. try a bit)

Do not use "framebuffer" support as debian woody does not have
framebuffer support enabled by default. If needed change your
/etc/X11/Xf86config to disable the framebuffer usage.

Thats it!
