This is more likely to be a question of X support, right?

In any case, FreeBSD 5.5 is no longer supported.  You should upgrade
to 6.2 for that reason alone.  Check the X.org web site to find out
whether the card is supported or not.  The driver version is
completely irrelevant, since you won't be using it.
