Hmm, I seem to be loading both here without a problem.[1]

$ lsmod | grep -E '(nvi|nouv)'
nvidia               8113064  30 
nouveau               470896  0 
drm                   205980  1 nouveau
i2c_algo_bit            5972  1 nouveau
i2c_core               22240  5 nvidia,i2c_i801,nouveau,drm,i2c_algo_bit

$ rpm -qa \*drv-{nouveau,nvidia}
xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-36.20090514git9656762.fc11.x86_64

[1] No, I'm not happy about tainting my kernel, but I absolutely
require the ability to sleep my laptop, and there are still some bugs
the nouveau maintainers are working through to make that
possible. (Q.v. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F11_bugs.)  I
originally bought a laptop with Intel graphics, but after a
catastrophic failure, the manufacturer replaced it with a model with
NVidia. :-( At least they upgraded everything else.
