Upgrading to Fedora 11 form Fedora 10 problem

ok, I used preupgrade to upgrade a computer to FC11, everything went well, but after upgrading the xserver wont start, with the "no sceens found error", I don't use a 3rd party video driver, feel free to laugh but it's NVIDIA's RIVA 128 (and theirs no xorg.conf although I didn't delete it), any suggestions?

I noticed Fedora 11 doesn't use an xorg.conf file, but I think that just means it assumes defaults. I would think if you put an xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ then it would obey it. Somehow if you stop your display manager and/or X then you could generate one with "Xorg -configure". Check through that file to see if it all looks OK and then place it as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
