Arrow Legacy drivers for Fedora 9?

Are there plans for legacy drivers for Fedora 9 and/or xorg 1.5 any time soon?

I have a 440go laptop with a 1920x1200 screen that I need to run Fedora 9 on without having to backrev X. (It is going to be my wife's machine.)

This is really starting to get very annoying isn't it.

The Nvidia drivers will not compile on my Fedora 9 system. I have a legacy Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti card installed.

Please see the other threads on this topic. Updated legacy graphics drivers with support for recent kernels should become available in the near future, updated legacy graphics drivers with support for the X.Org server shipped with Fedora 9 are planned for a later time. The changes required to the legacy X drivers due to the X.Org ABI 4 changes are non-trivial and may take longer to put in place than previous updates.

Maybe it would be a good idea to make a sticky post of that information.
