I don't know about the 3650, but my HD 2400 at work would
crash fairly often with the radeon driver on fedora 12
(I'm using fedora 13 radeon now, and so far no crashes).

On fedora 12 I did:

yum install xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd

(I think that was the name), then cobbled up an xorg.conf
file with this driver section:

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Option      "DRI" "off"
	Option      "AccelMethod" "shadowfb"
	Option      "NoRandr"
	Option      "UnverifiedFeatures" "off"
	Driver      "radeonhd"

The radeonhd driver wouldn't work very well either, but at
least it had lots of options I could add to turn off
just about all acceleration and get stable 2D video.
