I you're using Fedora, try downloading a package from an earlier release, maybe:

IIRC, I got one F20 installation working downloading the mageia driver
manually and using rpm's force option to install it, and ignoring the error

If you can't use a distro providing the software you need, maybe you'd be
better off sticking an eBay radeon or nvidia PCI video card in it if it has
no AGP or PCIe slot.
