Default Re: Fix doesn't stick through a reboot (semi-n00b)

chmod 0666 /dev/nvidia* chown root /dev/nvidia*

again and everything works but if I reboot......I think you get the picture.

What can I do to make those privilege/ownership changes permanent?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Assuming you are running Fedora Core 3, just edit the file /etc/udev/permissions.d/50-udev.permissions and change the line
Note: I am not recommending that you need to do this. I am only suggesting this as a solution to your particular problem.
