# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and

If you set the Driver to "nv" and otherwise leave this config AS IS, does it work correctly?

If you boot to mode 3, edit /etc/inittab to change this, then try to insert the nvidia kernel module, do you get any errors then? Try this after a fresh reboot.
modprobe nvidia

After this, telinit 5 to go back to graphical mode. If it fails try to get the output of the dmesg command, and post it here.

I had the same error on red Hat 8.0.

modprobe nvidia displayed:
0: nvidia: Can't find an IRQ for your NVIDIA card!

Per the instructions I changed 2 BIOS settings:
Plug & Play OS: No
IRQ to VGA: Yes

And it works now.
Good Luck from a fellow newbie.
