It seems to be Radeon® Xpress 200M:

It is not Mobility Radeon® 9200 (RV280).  I heard it's based on X300 
(RV350) but not sure.  FYI, it's codenamed as RS480.  As far as AGP 
concerned, can you send me 'pciconf -lv' output?

If you just want 2D, you have to patch xorg-server.  If you want to 
experiment on 3D accel, all of the above.  And maybe DRI also.

You can use NDISulator for the Broadcom wireless.
