Boot to a text prompt (ie level 3). You can do this by typing "level 3" in the options line when the grub boot menu first appears.

Then loggin as a regular user (not as root).

Then type the following to load the vesa driver:
su (enter the root password)
sax2 -m 0=vesa (that is zero equals vesa)
whoami (confirm you are not user root. If you are, type "exit" again).

If x-windows works, exit immediately, bringing you back to an ascii prompt. Then type
su (enter the root password)
shutdown -r now
and reboot. This time do not type "level 3" in the options. That should boot you direct to xwindows.

Once you get this working with vesa, you can go hunting for a custom ati driver. Good luck.
