depends on which version of X you are using, which in turn would depend on which version of fedora core you installed... if you are using fedora core 3, then you'd want the driver labeled "X.Org 6.8"...

BTW, it would be a good idea to add your distro (and version) to your profile so it'll be easy for people helping you to know what you are running...
