This is bit odd, there is no driver called "radeon" in XFree86 4.2. Are
you using the binary drivers provided by ATI perhaps?

I noticed this part in the driver status files at


Accelerated support is provided for Mach64, Rage, Rage 128 and
Radeon chips by the "ati" driver, as is unaccelerated support for
all of the others except the Mach8 and some early Mach32 chips.

Seems to me you be best served by upgrading.
