Description of problem:

If I set bios to use sidebar+shared mem for video, kernel doesn't appear to 
grok shared memory.  During boot, during graphical startup, screen is 
scribbled all over.  If I allow boot to try to proceed, everything starts 
segfaulting.  Apparantly, video shared memory is being scribbled on.  I have 
just updated bios to the latest and that didn't fix the problem.

There's no documentation on how any of this stuff actually works, so unless ATI
have a change of heart all I can recommend is to not set that in the BIOS.
