You might try booting with nomodeset. I have a r530 based card and while things
are getting better I can still coerce an X lockup or kernel crash (it's hard
to tell which is happening from the console sometimes). Things are stable
there (but at home with an r280 card nomodeset breaks things) when I use
nomodeset.
I have a ticket open for my lockups that I have been updating as I reproduce
the problem with later versions of things that are X related (kernel,
xorg ati driver, xorg server, mesa).
