I have a Dell Latitude with an ATI Mobility Radeon that has the same
problem. My workaround, is to get to a command prompt, logon as a user
and then issue the startx command. Then I get the GUI without problems. 

I am not sure why this works, but it's a workaround.

I did try commenting out the dri line but still had the same issue.

This laptop had no problems with FC1
