If memory serves me right, the IBM Thinkpad T40 has an ATI Mobility
Radeon 7500 video chipset - you won't need ATI's binary driver to get
decent 3D on this machine as X's own DRI-enabled open source driver
(ati) would be apt for the task. You could add these in the "Device"
section for your video:
Option "AGPMode" "4"
Option "EnablePageFlip" "1"
Option "AGPFastWrite" "1"
Option "HWCursor" "1"
Option "DDCMode" "yes"
