From a default install of RH7.3 if you follow my instructions you are able to properly setup ANY nVidia card with acceleration via the RPM's nad no not the source RPM's!

There's no absolute necessity to upgrade the kernel. But Red Hat recommends it.
IF and ONLY IF you do, you will have to use the tarballs. I always use the tarballs, anyway.
j_g asked for the easiest card to run under linux and my pick is the Voodoo 5 5500 since all you have to do to make it work is to install RH 7.3
