I use nouveau successfully with KDE in F10, but with "Desktop Effects" 
disabled, otherwise I get a huge white screen.

I have a dual-head display using the XRandR method with the following in 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"

EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option      "AIGLX" "off"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "DVI-I-0"
        Option       "LeftOf" "VGA-0"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1680x1050"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "VGA-0"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
        Option       "DPMS" "Off"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Device0"
        Driver      "nouveau"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Device0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection
