All you need for the x1650 is radeon and libgl1-mesa-dri. There is no special 3d driver for this old chipsets.
fglrx does not support such legacy hardware since years.

Please re-read the answers above. Your card is fully supported by the driver we deliver with Aptosid, all you need is libgl1-mesa-dri from experimental - see the manual link for further details. Do NOT install the driver you downloaded from ATI!
Greetings,
Chris
