	As far as I can tell now there should not be need for specifying different 
drivers for ATI boards.  The ati module will recognise your hardware and will 
trigger the loading of r128, radeon, etc, as a submodule.  Only if this is 
wrong (i.e. the following lines do not appear):

(II) Loading sub module "r128"
(II) LoadModule: "r128"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/r128_drv.so

you should force loading of the submodule directly.  So there is no difference 
for your case, and you should use ati instead of r128.

	Best regards,
