You've most likely installed the incorrect RPM. Please download and run NVchooser.sh (usage: 'sh NVchooser.sh') from the 1.0-4191 driver download page to find out which RPM you should install.

How are you downloading it? I just tried from some external sites and was able to download it without incident. Can you try getting it via FTP from download.nvidia.com/XFree86_40/1.0-4191?
