Well, its good to ask some obvious questions, so I went a checked.  I do 
have a /dev/dri/card0 and the permissions are 0666.  I am also setting 
this up as a system coming straight from RedHat, so I used their .config 
when compiling the kernel.  They (and I) do have agpgart set as a 
module, VIA chipset support built in and ATI Rage 128 and Radeon drivers 
set as modules. 

I think everying is right, but I may have overlooked something else.

I do think I'll go back and reinstall RH and add XFree86 support to see 
if it works there.
