That's right - also more painfully vesa doesn't support xv for video IIRC.

"Blanking out" could be a feature of your monitor reacting to video data
that it objects to rather than anything more complicated.  Maybe set up
your monitor and resolution using

system-config-display

while using vesa and try again with radeon now you know you can use the
runlevel 3 grub method instead of recovery boot.

If it fails again, examine /var/log/Xorg.0.log on the next reboot into
runlevel 3.

Gilboa's plan is worth trying too, unfortunately the manufacturer binary
drivers are the only things that will work on some video chip /
motherboard / BIOS combinations.
