Need to get three drivers.

1.) NVIDIA_nForce...rpm
2.) NVIDIA_kernel...rpm
3.) NVIDIA_GLX...rpm

They are all available from nvidia's site.


Do a text install . . .
once you have installed (Making sure not to start in Graphic mode)
install the 3 rpm packages listed above.

then in /etc/X11/XF86Config

find the line that says "nv" and change it to "nvidia"

then in /etc/inittab

cahnge the initdefault line to be init 5 and not init 3.

if you have hassles then reboot in interactive mode and do not start the firstboot service .... that will give you a chance to login on one of your tty's

I hope this helps
