not so long ago I had an X1300, and it was not supported in the centos 5 
xorg-x11-drv-ati. THe only solutions were vesa or fglrx (closed source 
ATI driver).
This was with centos 5.0 and probably also 5.1.
Unless things changed in 5.2, or X1200 is very different from X1300, I 
suggest you try fglrx if vesa doesn't suit you.
