Default Fedora 12 + nvidia driver 96.43.14 = black screen and Xorg 100% cpu

I performed a clean install of Fedora 12.
I performed fedora forum's NVidia driver "GEForce 4 and below" install instructions for a PAE kernel.

My card is:
[dabruhn@precision ~]$ lspci | grep nVidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV25GL [Quadro4 900 XGL] (rev a3)

Upon reboot I get the nvidia splashscreen for 30 seconds than black screen all the while Xorg runs the CPU at 100%.

I've requested help at fedora forums under this post but no solution was found.

I ran which is attached. The only error message in the log I could find is:
xset -q:
xset could not connect to an X server

I googled the error message but could not find anything helpful.

I removed the nvidia driver and am currently using the fedora default nouveau driver so the family has a working system again unfortunately without accelerated graphics.

I can reproduce at any time and can provide more information upon request.

Any help is appreciated.
