ooo, thats too bad , the propritary driver does not support r400 cards, So the bad news is that the free drivers do not have 3d accelleration with the current stable versions of Xorg-server, mesa, and libdrm. So you either have to wait, or get a newer card that you can use the ati-drivers on.

cheers.
