Default Nouveau Driver problem for Fedora 11 Preview

The only way that Fedora 11 Preview would install on my HDD was to use the installation with basic video driver setting. I have both Gnome 2.26 and KDE 4.2.2 installed.

How do I get the Nouveau driver to function so I can have 1620x1080 res. I don't know how. Help me please.

Say the real problem is that my LCD monitor goes blank at the Anaconda welcome slide. I have a Geforce 8800 GTX. This didn't happen to me with the Fedora 10 RTM and I could use the normal/Nouveau option . You can tell me the syntax for installation booting options to prevent Fedora 11 Preview from making my screen go blank once the Anaconda welcome slide loads.
