I *believe* that F8 uses the standard Xorg Linux Frame Buffer, fbdev. I know 
that F8.9x development system (Rawhide) does. This may be related to F8 
having switched running PV domains from xen-vncfb to 'qemu-dm -M xenpv ...'

I remember the F8 initial PV install by the dvd used the Xen Frame Buffer, but 
that may have switched over to the Linux Frame Buffer around the same time 
they switched from xen-vncfb to qemu-dm. Since I updated my F8 PV domain to 
Rawhide, I can't double check that for you.
