This card is actually based on a Rage128 Pro chipset, but it has a
single 64-bit memory bus, the normal Rage128 Pro chipsets have 2 of
3.x support was there, but it was terrible, the latest release of
XFree86 will handle it perfectly, and DRI is there and 'mature' for
Even the Radeon from ATI has support in the latest release.

http://www.ati.com/na/pages/products/pc/xpert2000_pro/ confirms that it's
an ATI Rage 128 chipset.
You didn't mention what version of XFree86 you're trying to set up: Any
4.x version should be OK, and should enable DRI-based 3D support. 3.x
support is doubtful.
You should be able to find XFree86 v. 4.1 compiled and packaged for your
choice of distribution, if necessary.
