I tried (and aborted) an upgrade from FC6 to F12.  The Nouveau driver
didn't support my second GPU card, and I had a %&*$ of a time getting
it to let me install the nvidia driver.

Unfortunately, the nvidia driver didn't work either - HUGE delays in X
events, kernel/vga/whatever problems, etc.  After four hours I gave up
and restored FC6.  Yes, I did try the rawhide kernel too.

For the record: I have a pair of 9800 GT 512MB.  The primary card
drives a Dell 3008WFP (2560x1600 landscape) and a Dell 2001FP
(1600x1200 landscape).  The secondary card drives a pair of Dell
2001FPs (1200x1600 portrait).  I currently use nvidia's proprietary
driver with Xinerama - no RandR, no compiz :(
