===================

I'm running FC3_x86-64 myself on a Gateway (7422GX) notebook with a
15.4" Ultrabright TFT WXGA display. Since I didn't see my display on
the list I ended up just using the generic LCD display and then I
modified my xorg.conf file. After you do your install there are
several sites you can hit up for 64 bit drivers. From what I've been
reading, Nvidia has much better support than ATi for 64bit Linux so
you're a l'il luckier than I am!
