If you're using the live CD from the Test Day page, F11 beta, or
Rawhide, and you don't have an xorg.conf that explictly loads nv, then
you're almost certainly using nouveau.

You can check for sure by looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log - it tells you
what driver's in use. If you can't quite grok it, pastebin it up
somewhere and I'll look at it for you.
