Your card is an ATI Rage 128 PP.  Unfortunately, that card was not
supported in XFree86 4.1.0.

Several months ago, I added support for this card for X, and put it
into my development rpm packages.  There will be an XFree86 erratum
release sometime in the next week or so, which should work on this
card.  XFree86-4.1.0-14
