I'm sorry, but this moment, the r128 is no longer supported by ATi (it's supported in Debian Squeeze, which is still under maintenance but very outdated).

ATI drivers are terrible on Linux. Try other driver versions, x and kernel too. Eventually it will work, but don't expect radeon to be stable at all. Everybody I know get continous X crashes or some artefacts, and performance is not better too.
