radeon is part of the ati driver.  You can specify either "ati" or 
"radeon" in the Driver section of xorg.conf.

radeonhd [-devel] is a separate driver from a different source.

IME, radeon is stable and works on the whole range of cards, although 
acceleration may be lacking on the newer R600/R700 cards.  radeonhd aims 
to support those newer cards but is more experimental.

So try ati/radeon.  If it doesn't work on your card, or doesn't provide 
acceleration you need, then go to radeonhd.
