This is my current setup in my master backend. I have the Ceton card
right next to the HVR-2250 on a motherboard with an AMD chipset with
ATI 3300 integrated video.  I am running Slackware64-current with the
3.0.0 kernel.  I had no troubles with booting with both cards.

Perhaps you can try blacklisting both cards' drivers (saa7164 and
ctn91xx) and loading them manually after your computer boots.  Make
sure the firmware is installed correctly before you load the kernel

Good luck,
