Hi
Just installed FC4 with Matrox G550
Graphics corrupt (as expected) both during install and when rebooted.

The xorg problem can be solved by
down loading
xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.FC3.13.i386.rpm's 
I replaced all 18 !!
Maybe there is a better way but !!!

Probably in run level 3 after a clean reboot
Something like
s1=`rpm -qa|grep -i xorg-x11`
Double check you really want to do this !!!!
echo $s1
rpm --nodeps -e $s1

Then assuming the 18 older versions are available
rpm --nodeps -i xorg-x11*.rpm

The graphics then works.
Whether other problems have been introduced only time
will tell!!

John
