Default Help On Nvidia Drivers

Hi all,
I've already installed new fedora distribution (fedora 12) on my acer aspire 1363 wlmi. Everything went just fine except for nvidia driver.
Video card is an nVidia GeForce Fx Go 5200. Searching on nvidia website I found that a suitable driver package.
First I tried using:

package as root and runlevel 3. But it gave following error:

Then I tried using yum.
Quote:
yum install kmod-nvidia173xx-PAE
Everything was ok but after rebooting screen was smaller and I'd to uninstall all nvida files and drivers.

So, please, could anyone tell me if exists a suitable driver for my Fx Go 5200 card? Then could anyone tell me, step by step, how to install it?

Thanks in advance for any help.
