People should stop blame NVIDIA for everything because of the binary-only
drivers. There are many reasons, why the 3D-accelerated drivers are not
(yet) open-source, some more valid than others. For me, the problem is
not 3D-acceleration, but TwinView. Reverting to the open-source driver
would break my configuration and not just make some games stop working.
Also, NVIDIA does not support Fedora Core 5. They support Linux in 
general and simply cannot follow every little technical issue of 
hundreds of distributions.
