Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" RC released!

I'm new to linux mint but not to Ubuntu or debian.
Sorry for posting this in wrong place first (in the Release forum).
I have tried to install Mint 12 Lisa RC and all I get is a black screen.
My machine is a HP Pavillion g series. Here is my /proc/cpuinfo : AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics AuthenticAMD
The graphic card is an ATI HD6520G (pci id number 9647). It won't work with the opensource driver (radeon).
I actually use the proprietary driver under linux Funtoo and it work for Xorg-server version 10.4-r1 and kernel 3.2.0-rc2.
The 11.10 proprietary driver won't work with Xorg 11 but the new driver 11.11 is supposed to work with recent version of Xorg-server. I have not tried it yet.
Is there a way to boot with the DVD and have a screen ? I have tried to pass "vga=771" at boot with no luck.
I would like to install Mint on a partition to try it for a while. But I'm stuck there with a black screen of death...
Thanks for any info,
