I can run it from latest CVS builds fine myself 
(find the chip which is your issue)

as root ran
pci bus 0x0001 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x1002 device 0x5157
 ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500]

I seem to have the same chip as you onboard

your mesage comes from vidix/drivers/radeon_vid.c
if(err && verbose) printf(RADEON_MSG" Can't find chip\n");

so it appears there was an error

it was not immediate during pci_scan because you would have seen
Error occurred during pci scan:

sets err to ENXIO
cycles through all the pci devices it found 
- need to check (should be at least 1) 

checks if vendor matches VENDOR_ATI or 0x1002
- need to check (must be true for your card) 

if yes checks if device_id matches one in list ati_card_ids 
- need to check yours if it is in the list libdha/pci_ids.h

#define DEVICE_ATI_RADEON_RV200_QW                      0x5157 
/*Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500]*/

this part never succeded or you would see 
 found chip message

please can you do some debugging?

good luck
