The i810 video driver is broken with the original FC3 distribution 
but the latest xorg packages have gone some distance to fixing the 
problems.  After you boot up in run level 3 update your system with 
the latest xorg packages and it may fix your problems.  One 
work-around for many of us with the original FC3 driver is to add 
to the driver section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf the following line:

  Option "noaccel"

At the grub selection screen press the letter "e", navigate to the 
kernel line and press the "e" again, append the number "3" to the 
end of the line to enter runlevel 3.

There is quite a bit about this problem in both the archives of this 
list, the fedora-test list and bugzilla.
