According to the manual page radeon(4x), the standard radeon driver that
comes with Xorg 6.8.2 should work. But there is no 3D accelleration,
i.e. DRI is not supported.

You should have something like the following in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

       Section "Device"
         Identifier "devname"
         Driver "radeon"
