ATI's latest Catalyst 10.7 now supports Xorg-server 1.8 after our 3-month wait. Fedora users should of course be used to this.

Maybe you should add a 'nomodeset' parameter in the grub entry, or you might encounter a black screen hang after plymouth, at least on my laptop.

2.6.34.6-47.fc13.i686 has problems with this driver, which blanks the screen at boot and causes grey artifacts to manifest in X. driver also causes acpi wake problems.
