Did you tried add the AGP driver for your chipset before than "radeon"
to MODULES array in your mkinitcpio file (Early start) or appropriate
.conf files in /etc/modules-load.d (Late start)?
In your case this card is a AGP, so you should have AGP support to
works, and add intel_agp, ali_agp, ati_agp, amd_agp, or amd64_agp
depending of AGP driver for your chipset [0]
