radeonfb = framebuffer driver (high resolution text mode)
radeon = name of the xorg driver (X driver)

If you want to load modules at boot time, you have to put them into the
initrd (the file system is not mounted at boot time):

mkinitrd --with=radeonfb /boot/<name-of-initrd> `uname -r`

You also need a video=radeonfb kernel parameter.
