Depends what you want to do. If you just want basic 2d functionality,
the driver pretty much works as is (with a copy of some xserver code
from recent versions); I intend to upload that to proposed-updates for
etch+1/2. If you want 3d accel, you'll need to backports bits of the
X server and mesa; I'm told Red Hat has done that for RHEL 5.2, but
haven't looked at it myself and probably won't have time to do that.
