Default Fedora 11+nVidia NV5 (RIVA TNT/TNT2 Pro)

I can't get the Nvidia driver to load with Fedora 11. I downloaded the legacy driver and it compiled OK.
The driver initially loads and then unloads with the message "undefined symbol: Allocate ScreenPrivateIndex." The Xorg log is attached. Any Suggestions?

The 71.86.* legacy driver does not support the X server shipped with Fedora 11. You'll need to either downgrade the X server to one that's supported by that driver or replace the graphics card with one that works with newer versions of X.
