I have got fglrx driver run ok on F10, but my video card is x300. I
followed the instructions in fedoraforum.org:
 http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=155503

Here is a list of what I have done:

su -
1. rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

2. yum install akmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs.i386

3. mv /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.backup

4. mkinitrd -v /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img  `uname -r`

5. add this "nopat" to the kernel arguments in /boot/grub/grub.conf

6. reboot

Wish it will help.
