I have a 9800 GT, and all I had to do for F13 was enable rpmfusion repo and
install kmod-nvidia; after that Nvidia driver was already used on the next
boot, but it didn't recognize my dual-head setup (which was expected). I
tried using nvidia-settings (as root) to configure dual-head, but I had some
trouble setting it exactly the way I wanted; then I just replaced
/etc/X11/xorg.conf with the one from my F12 /etc backup and that was it.
Much easier than with F12 =)
