Will that work with nvidia drivers as well?

You wont have KMS, but you will have a splash screen (as i understand it, correct me if i'm wrong), only it's a vesa framebuffer instead. With KMS you will have a smooth flicker free experience from BIOS>GDM.From what I've read, not at the moment.Will that work with nvidia drivers as well?

I'd love to try it but I'd only probably want to download the install dvd and with Tasmania internet (I have 512 kbps) it aint gonna happen too quickly.

I downloaded the Gnome Live CD last night, and gave it a quick go. Very nice! Lovely theme, and very fast for a live disc I thought. Still, I'm reluctant to install it. Trying Fedora in the past I've often found it to be a bit of a headache just trying to do simple things, such as enabling 3D etc. Ubuntu might not be as pretty, but it's miles ahead in the ease of use stakes for the end user, and is more like what a modern Linux should be in this regard imho. Also, it can be very difficult geting any kind of meaningful help for things on their support forums, so without a prior knowledge of Fedora, a new user can feel a bit alone.
Is it any easier to enable 3D Nvidia drivers with Fedora 10? Have any of you here installed F10, and what do you think? Cheers all.
