Check that the ATI Radeon driver supports your card. pciconf(8) and
the manpage for the ATI driver should help.

It sounds like it's working (bare X no longer has the hatch screen)
so it might be worth trying to launch an xterm & wm through ~/.xinitrc
assuming you use startx.

You need the line:

Option "DontZap" "off"


Section "ServerLayout"

of your xorg.conf in order to kill X with ctl-alt-backspace.
