Sorry that I'm getting in this late. I have the 9200SE card in two of my
computers. Both are running 5.4
I added the following line to my kernel:
And then my card is recognized by dmesg
drm0: <ATI Radeon RV280 9200 SE> port 0xc000-0xc0ff mem
0xe5000000-0xe500ffff,0xd0000000-0xd7ffffff irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1
info: [drm] AGP at 0xe0000000 64MB
info: [drm] Initialized radeon 1.11.0 20020828 on minor 0
Here are the important bits from xorg.conf
VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName "Unknown Board"
I hope this helps
