radeonhd was pulled from F8 due to it not really working.  It will
reappear in Fedora 9's rawhide.  Already in Fedora 8 is the avivo
driver which is an effort at supporting the same card set that started
before radeonhd.  Avivo is benefiting from ATI opening the
documentation and currently works a slight bit better than radeonhd.
However neither are in a state where we want to enable them by default.
