Forcing the removal of Mesa will cause NO problems, provided you get the nVidia libs installed, they fully replace the Mesa implementation and should not be loaded afterward. However, I can understand not wanting to do so. Bear in mind that what the nVidia installer does is to essentially remove Mesa by unlinking all its libs anyway.

You could force the install of the RPMs instead, noting that it will only overwrite the link that is conflicting. Your call.

Code:
Section "Device"

	# no known options
#"nvidia" for NVIDIA driver and "nv" for no NVIDIA driver
#        Driver       "nv"
        #BusID
	Identifier  "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
	Driver      "nv"
	VendorName  "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
EndSection
You may have just returned this to defaults, but it should read:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
EndSection
