Thanx guys, the problem is partially fixed,,
(thanks 2 you Sondre, XFree86 -configure...) 

X and gnome2 is now working, but it is using the "vesa" driver. 
For some reason i can't get it to work with the radeon driver, whenever i try using radeon 
i'm still getting:

(EE) No devices detected
Fatal server error: no screens found

I've tried the settings from my colleagues identical laptop (including all 
mod-lines) which is working for his Mandrake 9x installation,,
I will investigate further, and post my findings..

Best Regards
