You will need to remove the current Nvidia rpm's. They were compiled for your 2.4.18_18.8.0 kernel.

So start with this

rpm -e NVIDIA_kernel

Once those are removed, make new ones for your 2.4.18-24.8.0 kernel. I would suggest grabbing the kernel drivers as well as the GLX.

Then do the following

rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm

Then edit /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4). Making sure the driver is nvidia, "Load" "glx" is there. Once that is done all that's left is init 3 then init 5. You should be up and going then.

Yes you need to assign an IRQ to your video, other than that you should be seeing the Nvidia Logo as X starts up.
If Windows is superior, why doesn't IT know what I want when I hit TAB?
