but the box is now running Fedora11 and the display using the intel only works until the nividia drivers loads .. had this same problem in fedora 10 but fixed it by adding
Option "NoAccel" "true"

Here is the xorg.conf file that I use for Fedora 11 with the intel driver commented out

Wow, I doubt I can be a lot of help on this one but I always start by looking at the Xorg.0.log file after an attempted start to see if there are any clues. Did you do this?

I wonder if there is a good Xorg forum/list you could ask on? Fedoraforum might also be a good place to post this as it would get a lot more eyes on the problem.

You are using the 'nvidia' driver, does that still refer to their proprietary driver?

If so, you may want to try the nv or nouveau drivers. (if available)
Admittedly a shot in the dark but may be worth a crack?
