Silly me. A friend pointed out that the monitor section in xorg.conf was 
set to use the VGA input of my monitor. I had my video card connected to 
the DVI-D input of the monitor. Once I connected the cable to the proper 
port, X came up perfectly.
So now my LinuxBIOS is working. Still I have some observations:
1. Nvidia proprietary driver does not work, however NV works well enough 
for my purposes.
2. I've lost cpu frequency control (no powernow-k8) so now both my CPUs 
are running flat out at 3000 MHz. Core temperatures are hovering just 
below 70C (63C and 67C).
3. I now can load kvm_amd (without locking up my system) and use 
hardware acceleration to speed up my virtual machines.
