You can always init 3, login as root and startx if you *really need*
graphical root login (or use su in gnome-terminal or whatever gui
terminal is your favourite). I think that disabling root login in gdm is
fairly good security measure for noobs coming windows while experienced
administrators still know what to do if they need it. But I've never
really needed gui root login for the 4 past years I've been using Fedora

I don't know how Samba works, so forgive me if I say obvious stupidity,

other services like ssh, ftp, ...)? Isn't this a samba bug then?

Well, what works for me does not tell anything in general, but for the
first time, I've been using SELinux enforcing mode since installing
Fedora 11 Alpha. It does not get into my way.

I don't know how to read this. Your X does not start? Or does it start
with weird resolution? What are the results of the card not being
detected? Which drivers does not work (nouveau, nv, proprietary one)?
Have you filled a bug?
