I don't know. It sounds like I have my understanding of the issue wrong.
Someone who actually knows what they're talking about should pipe up on
the xorg list here... :-)

I tried FC x86_64 myself on my DG965RY desktop board and it worked
better than expected, but the windows on the screen were strangely
corrupted--half of the window was scrambled, kind of stretched at an
angle (it's kind of hard to describe what it looked like). This was the
Compiz that comes with FC6.

However, I am very entrenched in Debian these days and FC6 drove me
crazy for that and other reasons. After 72 hours of Red Hat, I ended up
installing Debian's unstable/amd64 distro (previously it had had i386
unstable on it) and I have yet to try reason other than I
thought I'd run into the same issues. I will, however, try it tomorrow
and let you know.
