The Fedora Devel team says that things will be broken and this is not for normal use. In this case the nvidia driver is broken on their custom kernel. I recomend you download the latest source from www.kernel.org and just make a new kernel and you will have a nice running system.
You are forgetting that 4KSTACKS will cease to be an option as of the soon-to-be-released version of Linus' kernel, being enabled by default. The current 2.6.x kernel is the last one where the present nvidia driver will ever work.
