I don't know about the nforce rpm, as that is not required for my system, but you don't need to reinstall the GLX rpm when you get a new kernel. you should just need to rebuild the kernel rpm whenever a new kernel is installed, as it rebuilds the /lib/modules/???? directory. this is where the kernel rpm installs it's module.

the "initdefault 3" stuff is also unnecessary, as you can install the kernel rpm while the system is running... it will just fail to install the new module - expected since you already have the old module of the same name installed. it will load properly upon next reboot, though.
