Default Redhat 2.4 kernel / rivafb

After several unsuccessful attempts to install the NVIDIA driver
using the basic install command "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg2.run"

the following command finally worked:

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg2.run --kernel-name=`uname -r` --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux-2.4

Using the standard line, the loadable kernel module was not found on
the NVIDIA site, nor on my system.

The error message about "rivafb driver conflicts with the NVIDIA driver"
appeared when building the loadable module. FAQ says:

A: Using both rivafb and the NVIDIA kernel module at the same time is
currently broken. In general, using two independent software drivers
to drive the same piece of hardware is a bad idea.

lsmod doesn't list rivafb. How do I remove rivafb?

Redhat WS 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp
NVIDIA FS1100

Thanks for suggestions.
