Presumably the source for the FGLRX kernel module isn't
available? If not, it'll be a struggle to get it going.

As I recall, the VESA driver tries to make calls back to the
bios, which Xen doesn't support right now (but I suppose in
principle might be able to -- I forget how they work).

Can you not just use the standard XFree86 'radeon' driver? It
claims to support the 9200.
