People might call it a stack because there are multiple components
(xorg, mesa, etc.)

The radeonhd driver is unmaintained.  It has been removed from later
versions of fedora.

try booting with "nomodeset" in the kernel command line (hint: press
"e" while in the grub boot menu)

I recommend updating to a newer version of fedora.  It will have a
newer version of the radeon driver.
