I had similar problems trying to make the install files...I found it easier to use the source RPMs instead.

rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-etc.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-etc.src.rpm

after building both src.rpms run

rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel-etc.rpm
rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX-etc.rpm

I believe that they were located in the /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586 directory

afterwards edit driver "nv" --> driver "nvidia" , and any other changes detailed in the nVidia instructions, in the XF86Config-h

note that you probably should be in command line for everything and the kernel source and headers must be installed (located on the international disk {3rd CD})

Good luck
