Seems like it's supposedly a two part process:
(1)put a file in /etc.modprobe.d named radeon.conf containing:
options radeon modeset=1
(2)add modules="radeon" to /etc/conf.d/modules
I note there existed a modules="fbcon" line there.
When I tried simply adding a separate line with modules="radeon" leaving both lines intact, the only thing that seemed to change was that when the startup messages said that consolefont failed to start, I noticed another error line just before it "putfont: KDFONTOP: Invalid argument"
Which error I also saw if I tried to use setfont prior to the first startx command... ??
Will try again without the fbcon line. A little lator... My lady is calling for some attention right now... bye
