is nVidia FX5600 supported by Fedora 1

Hi all

I installed few hours ago a Fedora on my laptop, a Aspire 1705sci whith a nVidia FX Go5600. During installation anagonda detect a vesa card (???).

So I started Fedora, installed some usualy tool for SAP consultant I'm. OK all worked prefectly.

And I modified graphical parameter and select GForce FX generic graphics card to replace the VESA driver and now I have a strange screen with line and square (very nice) but my linux is crashed.

So is anybody could help me please ?
How can I restart my Linux machine and force Anaconda to redect right parameter ?

Thanks a lot
