Using the alternate install CD (due to lvm) I was hit by #548537, so basically I did a network install using expert installation.

Installing the driver using jockey I was hit by another (#552702)
X wouldn't start properly for some reason (fglrx segfaulted) so I removed the config file and created a new one using

aticonfig --initial

which worked fine.

The desktop was very slow until I disabled compiz. I'd recommend it being disabled by default for at least the 5000 radon cards.!
