Question Black screen after Fedora Core 2 Test 3

Kind helpers,

I just upgraded to Fedora Core 2, Test 3 and then tried the nVidia
installer using the --add-this-kernel, followed by *
Everything seemed to run to completion without error.
But when I booted up to run level 5 (graphic mode), as soon
as the optical mouse light lit, normally the time when I get the
nVidia splash screen alerting the successful starting of X and the gdm,
all I get is a black screen. The computer is hung at this point.
Ctl-Alt-Backspace will not yield a text login prompt. Only a
hardware reset will unfreeze the CPU.

Looking in my /var/log/Xorg0.log tells me that:
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.

Any Fedora users having made it successfully to Test 3, just released,
please advise what I may have overlooked.

All help appreciated.

P.S. Please carbon copy my e-mail address
