I used F10beta Live with nVidia Corporation GeForce 6100 nForce 430 (rev 
a2) and I get GUI right after boot, however I also have resolution 
somewhere around 800x600. Setting monitor manually in 
system-config-display to whatever else got me to +-1920x1200. Obviously 
there is something sub-optimal..
