As this is done, how do i add 1002:5e4f to /etc/x11/kms-blacklist.local?

It's documented in the file itself. You know how to use an editor, do you?
Also there is an example in /etc/X11/kms-blacklist.radeon.

ok, i'll try vi to look at it...

I hate to say it, but vi is not working.
You can only read the help at the start, but not enter anything to get
something done at init 3, it is set readonly (root account), and i know
not how to change this.... :(
I had to install mc to find my way around a bit (thought it was
installed by default).
I found the files and tried to edit them.
This opened again an invalid vi, which just opened the vim help, but not
the file, so unfortunately there is no way to get to the logs, or get
something added via an editor as all the others require x, which cannot
be started. loop.

Looks like you never used vi before. Anyway, in that case you simply can echo
the string to the end of the file.

echo "1002:5e4f" >> /etc/x11/kms-blacklist.local

This together with the sysconfig variable should make sure that the next time
the radeon module will be loaded with KMS disabled (modeset=0). Check with

<boot into runlevel 3>
modprobe radeon
cat /sys/module/radeon/parameters/modeset
