I am experiencing a similar bug. Booting with nomodeset had no effect.
Is there a fix for this bug?
Dave: sorry ... haven't had time to test adding that option.
Scott: I just forced downgraded to
xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64 6.8.0-19.fc9 installed
Many thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately this didn't work for me - the X server still crashes. I have
a slightly different video card (X300) - maybe that has something to do
Can you test with fedora 12 livecd and report if it works with it.
I'd forgotten about this BZ, I'm using:
xorg-x11-drv-ati.x86_64 6.12.2-14.fc11 @fedora
...which doesn't crash.
