No Joy.  Been trying to get this working and ripping what is left of my hair out in the attempt.  According to what I see over at Phoronix some people have managed to get X-fire up and running with other cards - yet I don't see any success stories with the HD5970 as of yet.

I was able to get it to semi-boot with nomodeset option in grub, but it still dies apparently even before X even starts.
