I recommend you install the kernel version independent, kABI-tracking nvidia kernel module from the ELRepo Project. It survives kernel update and, because there is no compilation process required, you do not need development software.

http://elrepo.org/tiki/kmod-nvidia

The current version in the main repo is 256.53-1.el5. The latest version 260.19.12-1.el5 is in the *testing* repo. However, because of the ongoing problem with vmware/KVM, I doubt it gets promoted to the main repo any time soon.
