new card, still can't get X11 working

I originally sent this to the XFree86 list, but thought I may get some useful insight if I sent it here.
I had a SIS 6326, and had problems getting X11 up and running, so went
to the store, and picked up an ATI Radeon 9200SE.
Then I rebuilt the system, here's the info:
ids# uname -a
FreeBSD ids.marsik.org 5.2.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE #0: Mon Feb
23 20:45:55 GMT 2004
root at wv1u.btc.adaptec.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
Immediately after install, I updated the ports tree using cvsup, then
updated the ports by running:
Portupgrade -varRp -x openoffice
I then installed xorg from ports and configured xorg using both methods
specified by the handbook, which were:
The 'Xorg -configure' method &
The xorgconfig method
When I run 'startx', the system hangs.
Is there a magical video card I can buy to alleviate these issues? I
need to get past this point and get to what I'm really trying to do.
Any help is much appreciated.
Ps, the xorg log is attached
