Description of problem:
When kernel parameter nouveau.modeset=1 is given the display goes blank during kernel boot. It stays blank, i.e. even X start doesn't show anything. The machine doesn't lock up though, i.e. you can still safely shut it down with CTRL-ALT-DEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Smolt profile for the test machine attached as URL.
Does the non-kms support work ok? Also, can you post me your /var/log/Xorg.0.log from after starting X in both kms and non-kms modes.

Thanks. Can you give kernel-126.96.36.199-34.rc1.fc11 a try?
Retested with kernel-188.8.131.52-35.rc1.fc11.x86_64 from koji. Works like a charm now, thanks!
