Did the xdriver=vesa boot parameter and the install is proceeding

It succeeded. had to add radeon.modeset=0 to GRUB to get it to startup
correctly.  No way to predict that.

Usual procedure: file a bug on xorg-x11-drv-ati with the appropriate
information...

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Xorg/Debugging

does the installer boot OK if you use radeon.modeset=0 (but not
xdriver=vesa)?

I suspect I'm seeing something similar.  With the latest rawhide
(xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.12.2-21.fc12.i686 and
kernel-2.6.31-0.125.4.2.rc5.git2.fc12.i686), I'm unable to login to
startx without seeing the following segfault.

G. Wolfe, can you please check your /var/log/Xorg.*.log after trying to
start up with KMS enabled on the affected system to see if your issue is
the same as jlaska's? it's quite important - if this is affecting
multiple cards it may have implications for the Alpha.

I don't show a segfault, but the QD 7200 fails to detect a screen and errs out. The network comes up and the system is running underneath a dead head. The error in Xorg.0.log is that it can see no monitors definitely connected, then it says screens found but not useable.
