Interesting. I have a PCI Radeon 9250, which I think is the tail end of
the same basic design as what you're using. I had plenty of freezing
problems until I switched to the ati driver.
Although come to think of it, I disabled the
line in xorg.conf, too, by putting a # at the start of the line (this
turns the command into a comment, which x.org ignores. This is very very
common across lots of software for Unix and Unix-like OSes).
I'm on AMD64, with a NForce 4 based motherboard.
Hope this helps,
