An F10 Old Xorg.conf Bug Returns in F11B

Just tried F11 Beta on my home machine with an on-board NVidia GeForce
7100 chipset. The MB is the EVGA 7100.

A bug that was found in F10 with this combo has returned in F11B. Back
then, F10 would not properly recognize my GeForce 7100 card and
basically stop. I would fall back to VESA to get things to work, but
would have to force a default xorg.conf file onto a USB drive Live CD to
make that happen. We did get a fix into F10.

Well, the same thing is now back in F11B. It's exactly the same problem.
I still don't understand why we can't recognize this card. It seems that
it has been consistently left off of the compatibility list for the
OpenSource NVidia drivers. Only the proprietary drivers work correctly
with it.

Any chance we can at least get a fix in F11B so we fall back to VESA for
now? Any chance we could actually see this card supported by the
OpenSource drivers?

This problem makes installing Fedora a REAL HASSLE!
