I played around with the options, this is what I got now and it works
Identifier "ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R200 QL [Radeon
8500 LE]" Driver "ati"
Option "AGPFastWrite" "yes"
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
: Render acceleration is enable by default so no need to specify
Adding the EXA option dropped the performance shown by GLX Gears, but
Adding the AGPFastWrite increased the frame rate reported by GLX Gears,
but not even one quarter as much as it dropped by adding the EXA option.
Tried setting the agp mode to 4, but that just kills my system when X
tries to initialize so didn't play with that any more.
Before I played with the options GLX Gears was reporting frame rates
above 2000 now it is reporting around 1972.
