What is the problem? You can get X to start, but it is just a blank screen?

bug has been filed, no workaround yet...
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=123953

you can also go here and leave your experience and any workarounds you find...
http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHardwareInfo

Now, if it is that you just can't get X to start at all, like you can see 
errors etc... supply the error messages or other important info here and 
someone will help you.

have fun!
