Where did you read this?  FC6 ships with everything needed.  If you
need 3D accleration for graphics, then you'd need to install the
nvidia X driver after installing the OS,  but beyond that, you
shouldn't need to do anything special.

It may be worth disabling rhgb to avoid a disappearing mouse
pointer bug (which aflicts both nv and nvidia drivers) alternatively
adjust xorg.conf to use a software mouse pointer). I don't use
SATA or hardware RAID, so I don't know if there are any problems
with those.  I do use the ethernet controller with a n430 chipset,
but not on x86_64. As far as installing 32 bit FC6 goes it was
straightforward, but I haven't tried 64bit.

The nvidia driver is needed for dual head support, a 64bit
version can be found in the usual repos.
