Fedora 12 gold. Well, not so golden

Problems updating from F11 -> F12

1st: graphics interface (X) didn't work. Hardware NVIDIA 5500 + LG 710E CRT.
After update: /etc/X11/xorg.conf was altered:

Section "Device"
        Driver "sis"
#      Driver "nv"

I guess that install is detecting motherboard's Sis chip (but it is
LG 710E is also source of problems since correct definition is:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier   "Monitor0"
    VendorName   "LG"
    ModelName    "710E"
    HorizSync    30.0 - 71.0
    VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
    Option        "DPMS"


2nd: after using textual update (that went without problems) and fixing
/etc/X11/xorg.conf kdm failed to start

keyboard and language, <tab> & arrows are "borked" (escape sequences).
