Welcome Matt.

What version of Fedora did you install?
What is the video card model? 
Both of these are important to know so people can help you.

A general answer is that you can install the ATI kernel module (driver)
from ATI which requires you do to do some work or you can use yum to
install the kernel module from Livna.org.
