After the posting of Scott Henson, I disabled the framebuffer
and now everything works right. Thanks a lot!

As I could see, no modules are loaded, I think I was able to 
compile the kernel so that it contains all needed modules.
If the modules are built-in, how can I ensure the order in which
they are loaded?

A small question by the way - I think it's offtopic and it isn't
important - just thought that there are lots of good people in here
which may have an idea. Simply don't answer if I'm OT:

TuxRacer runs at a terrible performance. Could this be the problem
you said above with the agpart and the radeon-module?

Thanks a lot, you were very helpful,
