ibook G3 Fedora Core 10 Issues

I installed FC10 on my ibook G3 last night and have run into a few issues. Firstly, the video resolution is stuck at 800x600 thus does not extend to the right of the display and wraps at the bottom of the display. When I check the resolution no other choices are available, so I suspect a driver issue but I can't find the correct one. I tried installing one last night and it came back and said the driver was already installed. Any ideas?

Also, the wireless network connectivity does not work, however wired works like a champ. Again I suspect a driver issue. I see a re-spin exists for FC10 PPC but I can't find the download for it. Could the re-spin resolve these issues? Lastly, should I wait until FC11 is released and hopefully these issues are resolved? BTW, Ubuntu 5.10 installed with no issue, but I want a newer release on my ibook.

Thanks for the help!
