r128 driver problem with FC5

Hi. I've been through all the FAQ's, and can't find anything relating to my 
problem. The graphics are ok using the vesa driver, but it's a real no go 
with DVD's. FC1,2,and 3 on the same machine, have no problem with the r128 

The query below is the one I accidentally posted to the Xfree86 mailing list, 
which didn't go down too well.

FC5 installs ok, but to start X, I have to change the r128 driver to vesa 
in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I had similar problems with FC4 and the Cyberblade i1 card's Trident driver, 
but after doing all the updates, post install, I was able to change back to 
the Trident driver, and X started ok.

I don't know whether this is a problem due to system packages needing to be 
updated or what.

I can't say that I like messing with xorg.conf. More often than not I find 
myself in text mode, and have to have a quick nano session to put things back 
as they were to get X to start.

This is the output from /var/log/Xorg.setup.log when trying to start X with 
the Rage128's r128 driver.
