Default Trouble installing 7950 GX on Fedora Linux

First time posting - can't seem to find anyone with a problem like this - so here is goes:

Running XP with VMWare RH FC 6 installed.
Dual Intel Core 1.86Ghz
Nvidia 9750 GX video

I've tried downloading and running:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9742-pkg1.run
and
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9631-pkg1.run

Both star right off by saying "You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 1.0-XXXX ... " blah blah blah. The README do not have this card listed. Are there other drivers I should be using? Are drivers going to be released for this card for Linux?

Anyway...

The install can continue - it tries to find a kernel at Nvidia - then it builds on on it's own - then it says Unable to load the kernel module "nvidia.ko". This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of ccc that differs from the one used to build the target kernen, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernal module form obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics deviscs."
it tells me to check the log files...

When I check the logs it says, "NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!".

Is this because I"m running VMWare?

Thanks in advance for your help!
