Hang after frglx install

Sigh... some things never change.
Good thing that this time I didn't try this on my main machine!

Got the card mounted in the old acer box.
After installing 14.4 of the ATI drivers:
ls -al amd-catalyst-14-4-rev2-linux-x86-x86-64-may6.zip

The last I see on the screen before boot hangsis:

  Loading kernel module radeon

Console is still responsive.

So next is probably safe boot + blacklist the radeon driver.
