have you tried building the fglrx drivers from source?

I'm downstream on Ubuntu (for the repos of all things) and ironically, fglrx drivers in the repo are very old. built from source from the main site and I've got 13.4 drivers going that run noticably faster. all much faster than the mesa open source drivers.

not yet, it seemed that because fglrx driver for radeon mobility X300 on T43 does not support X11 on debian more recent than lenny.

so i installed lenny and got it working nicely despite lenny is not supported anymore
