Does that mean I shouldn't even try for 3D acceleration?

Use the Nvidia 173.14.22 series drivers for your FX 5200. 3D won't be
spectacular, but it will be useable.
Is it something I can do with yum and rpmfusion?
I'm able to work outside the package system,
but I always find it a struggle.

kmod-nvidia on rpmfusion

See <http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1114782&postcount=2> for complete instructions. You need the section "For GeForce FX cards".
I just tried it on an old box with an FX 5200 running the "nouveau" 
driver on F11. Seems to work fine. I used the "Blacklist the nouveau 
driver" section to keep nouveau from loading. You may not need to do this.
