Personally I would use the nouveau drivers that are stock with
fedora 13.  Works out of the box, OpenGL works, 3D games
play at decent frame rates.  For what do you need the nvidia
driver?  Why put up with compile your own with each kernel
roll.  Akmods worked fine with F11 and f12, when nouveau
was 2D only.  I tried the akmod when I went to f13 but it failed
with the PlanetCCRMA kernel, so I went back to the nouveau

The more people who use nouveau, the more bugs will be
found, the better nouveau will get.  Support open source and
use nouveau.  I have no problems in everyday use, works on
my 1600x900 laptop, program OpenGL with fluxus, play
TORCS, and my daughter played a window 3D RPG using
WINE with no problems.
