Which server are you using ? For the latest ATI board, use XF86_SVGA,
Also which NetBSD version ? To get rage fury support, you need the
latest XFree86 3.3.6 with the public fix 01. I think its only
available in binary form in the recent (1.4.3_ALPHA or 1.5_ALPHA2)

If it doesn't work, you may try XFree86 4.0.1 (You have to get the
source from ftp.xfree86.org and compile it, there is nothing in pkgsrc
to help build it), which has a more complete r128 driver.
