> 1.) I cannot find how to disable DRI.

With xf86-video-ati 6.6.191, Option "DRI" "off" should do the trick. With older
versions you may need to prevent the X server dri module or the kernel radeon
module from loading, e.g. by moving them away.

Generally the settings should match between the BIOS setup and xorg.conf. The
safest settings should be FastWrites off and mode 4x or 8x in both.
