The bug in radeon driver for the X200 chip is not fixed yet, but you may
want to see last comment, that is:

Machines with such chip have a problem with warm boot, but if you leave it
powered off for a while, it will boot fine without any intervention. I
checked only after 5 minutes, and it booted fine.

The idea is that card (chip) has to loose any previously set values in
hardware registers, which will happen after some time without power.

Evidently not on the machine in question this end

The same bug in radeon driver can be responsible for problems to wake
machine up after suspend to RAM, or even suspend to disk if user wants to
start machine before chip registers are cleared.

Hi .
Well what i do know is that if you install 11.2RC2 completely on a bare drive
finish the install and reboot straight into GUI mode no problems but ! if you
boot into GUI the "Ctrl+Alt+F1" to get to a tty the video will be corrupted
Out of sync and then when you reboot (needed to clear the graphics corruption)
you can not boot straight into init 5 (GUI) it hangs at the Afore mentioned
HAL part and althou that is After the network is setup there is no response
from the system at all forcing a hard reset is the only way out but if you
boot to init 3 you are fine to go init 5 as a user but the initial loging
must be root else the desktop is completely unstable.
