Unhappy Nvidia Driver Startup Issue

I installed nvidia driver with the help of this link.
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...c6.html#nvidia

Now i have a problem. During startup process, the screen goes blank for a while and it then turns white, pink etc However also during startup, it does ask for any key to be pressed within a certain amount of time so on pressing a key it gives an option of OS on the system. It shows 2 linux installations, thats what i think it is. Selecting the top one causes the above problem, selecting the lower one works fine and loads the system. What could be the problem?

Below is the code generated during installation. Any help would be appreciated.

Code:
[root@x1-6-00-c0-9f-40-e0-ad ~]# rpm --import RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY
error: RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY: import read failed(-1).
[root@x1-6-00-c0-9f-40-e0-ad ~]# yum install kmod-nvidia
