Rebooting X, and launching the game Half Life without issues! Sweeet!
EDIT: Also, Quake II plays really nice even with software rendering. Some of the native games that need opengl are not installing however due to conflicts with the software vs hard rendering. I am still trying to figure that out so I can play armagetronad.

An important note on getting glxgears to run. Only adding the unstable repos and installing xserver-xorg-video-mach64 version 6.9.6-1 will work for some reason with the ati rage mobility card in this system.
