Would it be feasible for you to try the kernel and Xorg from backports?
I presume so. I've read the backports web page and it seems simple
enough to use.
For single packages it is very easy, just
apt-get install -t squeeze-backports<package>
but I don't know exactly which package to pull for Xorg. I would try
xserver-xorg-video-radeon and hope it will pull anything else needed
Hm! I've tried that, but it seems I shall have to upgrade my kernel.
The error message is:-
"This version of xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is linked against a newer
libdrm-nouveau which breaks the ABI and is not compatible with kernel
<= 2.6.33. You need to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.34 -rcl or newer.
Do you mean recompiling the kernel?
No, there is a 3.2 kernel on backports (it has bpo in it's name).
