I finally got my local X server to work, but changing the Driver vesa was not enough. Here's the xorg.conf file I used to get a display...
Section "Screen"
  Identifier "Screen0"
  Device     "Card0"
  Monitor    "Monitor0"
  DefaultDepth 24
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth     24
    Modes     "1280x1024"

Section "Monitor"
  Identifier   "Monitor0"
  HorizSync    36-52
  VertRefresh  36-60

Section "Device"
  Identifier  "Card0"
  Driver      "vesa"

I had to put the monitor H sync and V refresh rates in the file for this to work. I did this because I saw 36-0 values in the log and thought it was strange. Is this worthy of a bug report?
So I guess the initial problem was, the new xorg nouveau NVIDIA driver
doesn't work with my nVidia Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 LE]. Should
I file a bug report with Fedora or xorg?
