Xorg broke ABI with 7.x release, hence message above.
Driver you have is for xorg-6.8.
You'll need ATI 8.27.10 drivers, they have support for Xorg-7.1.[1]
Also,I see from message above that you have R200.
Quote from link below:
"There still is no further word on the status of R200 products with
these drivers." 
But, better check [2]

Well, you learn something new each day, the 55MB installer has copies of
the driver for both XFree86 4.1-4.3 AND X.Org 6.8 - 7.1. After
downloading the big one, and running it, I've now got a functionaly X!
