Default Need help installing 7900GT drivers on FC6 emt64

First off, I don't even know how I go about installing these drivers. The info here suggested using yum but that just says it cant find the packages:

http://easylinux.info/wiki/Fedora_FC...r_.28NVIDIA.29

When I go to the nvidia site, select download drivers and click "Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris Drivers" then go to emt64 it takes me to
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-9629.html

but when I select Graphics Driver -> Geforce and TNT2 -> Linux AMD64/EM64T from the 3 list menus it takes me to
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-8776.html

so which one of those should I use?


I tried using those 2 that were linked to and it told me to turn x server off. I know roughly what X is but don't know how to turn it off. I tried running the nvidia-xconfig as the readme told me to but that just resulted in the next boot it failing twice on each card trying to open the x config file and ending up having to generate a new one so that I could get my gui back

How do I get these drivers installed on my system?

My system:
Intel Core 2 Duo
Fedora Core 6 x86_64
2*GeForce 7900GT (XFX Extreme edition)
DigiMate 17" TFT
