After using a modified version of this:
For some reason, it says Driver "ati". I changed that to r128 and a few other things in there.
Then, I emerged emerge -av x11-drivers/xf86-video-r128
And the picture is beautiful, crystal clear. Now if I could figure out why my framebuffer goes to a black screen. I had it working. The only change I made was recompiling the kernel with a 3Com driver for my ethernet. So now, the only way is to type my username and password without seeing a thing, then startx or login through ssh. Please help me to get the framebuffer working. Thank you.
.config (I double checked it this time)

Do you have VIDEO_CARDS="radeon" in make.conf? That should pull in
x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati, I think that's what has the missing radeon X
module, which is different from the kernel module. I think!
Whoa, now THAT is a weird Xorg.0.log file!
Um, it's the wrong file
