Default problem with ati display card

I install squeeze, but xserver doesn't work
after I install xserver, and run xinit, it fails
I find that there's no xorg.conf at /etc/X11
so I copy it from etch, it still doesn't work
(it display strangely, I have to press button on the case to shutdown)

I attach my xorg.conf
(I have to use vesa driver)
below is part of output by xinit

xinit??

The standard command for brining up the GUI is "startx".

Squeeze does not 'need' a xorg.conf file. Try without and look
in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for error messages. I think 'ati' is replaced by'radeon',
Anyway autoconfiguring of X on boot will figure it out or tell you about
failures.

ATI card support for older cards may be an issue. I have one that stopped working
when upgrading from etch to lenny. I too use the 'vesa' driver on an old laptop,
The new vesa is better than I remember the old vesa working.
