before you re-compile your kernel use the running kernel as a template:
Code:
less /proc/config.gz > /path/to/compile/directory/.config
Then run make menuconfig and add your driver
ps. make sure your root filesystem (eg ext3) is compiled into your kernel, not a module!
Now compile, make install, make modules_install and reboot!

The system may have swapped the devices... tried to reconfigure it?

Edit: perhaps some other kernel module is required? Check your menucofig

fedora 10 is no longer supported
fedora has a 13 month life cycle and a NEW version is released every 6 months

If you do not want to reinstall the operating system every 6 months then do not use fedora.

from your above post you have a bit of a misconception of fedora
Fedora is a TESTING and "Research And Development " distro

It pushes the box of what is possible And as such things will very often get broken .updates do and will brake things


if you DO like to fix a busted os or programs and LIKE to fix code then fedora is a great OS
BUT IT IS NOT " a just should work" OS .

Maybe its just taking a while to switch framebuffer modes.
Try giving it 30seconds or so and if that does not work, check the frame buffer drivers compiled in.
