nomodeset did the trick. I can now boot and nothing crashes.
Would be nice if modesetting worked though.
Can you post the lspci output for your machine, and
grab /var/log/Xorg.0.log when modesetting is enabled and X starts, and
you experience the problem?
I get 1280x1024 resolution in X now, despite configuring 1400x1050
s-c-d, so everything is stretched wide. Didn't have this problem with
Fedora 10. Makes looking at photos a bit worrying :)
