Don't use XFree86-3.x.x it does not support the full DRI options available 
for fully supported cards such as the Radeon 7500.  Ask someone on this 
list with a Radeon7500 to post their XF86Config, copy it and then check 
the /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see if there are any errors.  Possibly you 
need to update Xconfigurator also?  What distro are you using?  
(Xconfigurator is a RH specific tool AFAIK and in their latest distro 
release, 8.0, they've dropped it in favour of redhat-config-xfree86).
