Can't see Verne through the GUI

Finally did a fresh install of RC3 using specialized storage devices
to avoid the previously reported problems.  Used Ubuntu recovery/grub
to fix the boot loader.

Installed with the default video driver on a Geforce 460SE.
Still won't run Genome 3.  Wether or not one agrees with
Linus's characterization of Gnome 3, the fallback mode is
unarguably brain damaged.

I downloaded rpmfusion and its Nvidia helper.  Unfortunately
this resulted in a system that wedged during loading.

If Fedora is going to depend on a GUI that is downright dreadful
without 3d acceleration, it needs an Ubuntu style routine that
checks for Nvidia or ATI cards and offers to make it Just Work.
