for my set-up I found help with the following sites:

It is up & running for more than 4 months now: AMD K7, AGP nVidia card 
(nv35), ATI PCI card (r600 with internal PCIe to PCI). I am using nv and 
radeon from xorg as provided by Debian testing and sometimes Debian 
unstable. Even with the partly (very) old components everything works 
fine. We are not in gaming, though :-)

Even if the guides are partly dated I found them useful.

If you are interested, I could send my conf files in the evening 
(European time).

Best regards & good luck,
