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 5.2.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE #0: Mon Feb
	23 20:45:55 GMT 2004
	root at  i386
	Immediately after install, I updated the ports tree using cvsup, then
	updated the ports by running:
	Portsdb -uU
	Pkgdb -u
	Portversion -v
	Portupgrade -varRp -x openoffice
	Portsclean -CDD
	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
