Unhappy How do I restore the default graphics card driver that came with Fedora Linux?

Ok, here it is...

I recently downloaded the DRI graphics driver for my ProSavage KM133 video card in the hopes of being able to play 3D games on Linux. What happened after I installed these drivers is that I was unable to start X. At this point I don't even want to be able to play 3D games. All I want to do is restore the default drivers that came with Fedora Linux (core 1#) when I installed it from CD's. What do I need to do here?

How did you install those drivers?
If it was an rpm package you can uninstall the package with the rpm -e command and then change back your XF86config to undo whatever changes you may have made.

Maybe a mod can combine these two threads?
