Thank

your very much for all your pointers! I tried everything as
suggested (and more) but I could get further then a complete dark
screen after booting since the monitor light was completely turned off.

As this comments indicates
http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/12037.html?thread=373509#cmt373509
I suspected the efi boot to be guilty :) and therefore reinstalled
fedora 17 (keeping my home partition) and chose the bios compatible
booting mode this time (by turning the efi boot partition into a 1 MB
partition choosing BIOS*something as filesystem)
I then installed the nvidia driver (from rpmfusion), and regenerated
the initramfs using dracut. Now the nvidia driver works as expected
and as a bonus there are no failures when resuming from suspend to ram
(applies to both the nvidia and the nouveau kernel module).

So thank you again for your help and numerous pointers! Now I am
really deeply satisfied with my fedora 17 installation :).

Best,
Andre
