That's weird.  I don't really have any ideas, but I remember getting a
hang on bootup using a Visiontek ATI Radeon 9200SE 128MB (PCI) on one
of my computers.  That was a while ago and it seems like if the
previous kernel booted fine, you shouldn't have any hardware problems
with this one.  Maybe you should check and compare the kernel
parameters used (i.e. "noacpi").  I think you can hit 'e' at the GRUB
prompt to see them.  You might also try pulling out the video card and
using the onboard one to see if it boots correctly without the ATI
