Fed 16 and crashes and freeze ups

I've been having a lot of trouble with Fed 16.
I recently installed the latest Ubuntu on /dev/sda5. It reloaded grub, but kept my grub.cfg entries for Fedora. But it did slim the entries down!
I just updated Fed 16. This is the latest grub.cfg entry as of this Fedora update:
Original Fedora entry:
menuentry 'Fedora (3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64)' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
load_video
set gfxpayload=keep
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos4)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 70a1938a-f33b-49d7-a526-9ca9ef2cadde
echo 'Loading Fedora (3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64)'
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64 root=UUID=70a1938a-f33b-49d7-a526-9ca9ef2cadde ro rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 KEYTABLE=us quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd /boot/initramfs-3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64.img
}
Slimmed down Ubuntu style entry:
menuentry 'Fedora (3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64)(on /dev/sda4)' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos4)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 70a1938a-f33b-49d7-a526-9ca9ef2cadde
echo 'Loading Fedora (3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64)'
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64 root=/dev/sda4
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd /boot/initramfs-3.1.5-6.fc16.x86_64.img
}

I could not shut down cleanly when I used the original Fedora entry. Then, after forcing a shutdown, I could not reboot, both Fedora and Ubuntu froze at the log in screen. (This happens a lot) The only recourse is to boot Windows, then it will reboot.

Using the slimmed down Ubuntu style entry, I do not have this problem. I'm sure this is all related to the ATI 6310 GPU/APU, whatever you call it.

Can anyone explain what is going on??

Especially this:
load_video
set gfxpayload=keep

and this:

root=UUID=70a1938a-f33b-49d7-a526-9ca9ef2cadde ro rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 KEYTABLE=us quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
