You might try the rawhide kernel in f12. There is a reasonable chance that
will work. I have been having some problems with it myself and am running
the f12 kernel on a rawhide system.

The issues I am seeing are a hang requiring nomodeset (ATI r200 video card)
and another hang related to udev with encrypted devices requiring a modified
dm rule. I also see traceback warnings during the boot, so some other things
are probably broken as well.
