I was reading on your bug report that you can get the radeon card to 
function with an older kernel. I have not tried that, but I did try an 
older version of X, before the CVS version. This crashed badly, just as 
with the CVS version of X

Your comment from the bug report.

only fixes are to use kernel <= .524 (no good as there's no CD-Rom support,
remove rhgb from kernel args (no problem, but Red Hat might not like that!

This might be related to trying to create /dev/radeon after the /dev 
nodes were setup. If the older kernel works with this issue to allow X, 
then maybe those programs related to /dev can work on a fix.
