Well, this is hardly surprising. As I wrote in my previous message, we 
need to build a patched kernel to see whether it fixes the problem. 
However, I did not recognize that you cannot even boot the installer, 
so you are unable to build/test such kernel.

One thing you can try is disable aty framebuffer to see whether it 
will allow you to boot the installer. After you see the installer 
welcome screen with the 'boot:' prompt, instead of simply pressing 
Enter, try entering 'install video=atyfb:off' (without quotes) and 
then press Enter. That should boot the kernel with framebuffer
