F11 lockup waiting for hardware to initialize

Description of problem:
I am unable install F11 on a Fujitsu-Siemens Esprimo P5710.
Both the DVD install and preupgrade lock-up on
"Waiting for Hardware to initialize ..."
usually without any further message.
[once an invalid opcode message had been printed on the
screen afterwards; however, this I cannot reproduce this
in a reliable way]
The keyboard ends up being locked up as well, but there are
no flashing leds to suggest a kernel panic.
F10 works sort-of-fine (apart from having to size the memory manually).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time an install is attempted.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt a DVD or preupgrade install
Anaconda setup screen
The machine has a shared memory video card; processor is a Pentium-D @3.40 Ghz.
I include a copy of lspci, in case it is needed.
The bug seems similar to 471375 (but the network card as well as the product version are different)
Try removing "quiet" and adding "ignore_loglevel" to the boot options to see where it hangs.
Here I go ...
[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
radeon 0000:01:05.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
[drm] Detected VRAM RAM=131072K, accessible=131072K, BAR=262144K
This is, unfortunately, a shared memory video card.
Incidentally, I can change the amount of memory allocated to the video card
to 256M by a setting in the bios. The system still locks up, the only difference
being the third line which becomes (as expected)
[drm] Detected VRAM RAM=262144K, accessible=262144K, BAR=262144K
The bug is definitely related to the video card (which is a RC410); I can get anaconda to start with the "nomodeset" option (no luck with X, though). Hence, it appears to be a duplicate of 498457.
