x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati (6.6.3) works well.
I don't think you need an up to date graphics driver for an old laptop.
There are no more changes in the support for the Radeon Mobility 7500.

There are different wireless cards used in the T41.
Atheros AR5212 is well supported
(madwifi, wpa_supplicant, etc.)
