radeon driver causes random lockups



I've been using the ATI driver described in the message below.  It's been causing my laptop to lock up randomly. 

Please update the following bugs if you are experiencing this:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/5/i386/xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.5.8.0-1.i386.rpm

removed my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and ran

system-config-display --reconfig

and I was up and running again. The T30 built-in LCD does 1024x768 natively,
but the xorg.conf file it wrote only supported 800x600, but that's an easy
thing to fix by hand.

Note that I haven't tried to tweak the AGP speed or turn on acceleration or
anything like that, yet.

Following the advice described below didn't work for me at all.
