I'm sure I'm being a bit impatient.
This was my first system build using ATI. My prior system is running FC7 with an old Nvidia Geforce card. Under the proprietary drivers from Nvidia, the thing just works (not counting using the 3d desktop effects, I don't want them). I was hoping for the same from ATI, but, again, I guess I'm being impatient going for a recent release of Fedora.
Maybe I should try to downgrade the kernel or downgrade to Fedora 8 for the time being... I dunno.
Anyway, If I have to tough it out for awhile, then the radeonhd driver will get me to where I'm going since I do not have to be on the text console often.
The OpenGL use with this driver is not that great at full resolution. It looks like the CPU is doing all of the work and sending the calculated data to the card for display. Or, the 3450 card was a poor choice on my part. (Had a bad experience with Nvidia and DVI).

Reason: corrected bad term.
