Default Errors Installing BFG 6200 OC on a Fedora 8 i686 32bit machine. Please Help!

Hello, I'm running Fedora 8 (2.6.23-1.42.fc8 i686) on a 32bit system

I am trying to install and use my BFG GeForce 6200 OC video card.

A. When I install the card WITHOUT modifying the etc/X11/xorg.conf file I get the Kernel Panic error in the first two screenshots(there are 2 edited screenshots of the same screen, I was forced to do that because the original pic was bigger than 100kb, KernelPanic-A.jpg and KernelPanic-B.jpg are from the same screenshot)

B. When I install the video card after editing the file, /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
After changing the Driver setting to 'nv' then reboot with card installed. I get an error screen that contains only [<c####>] messages just like in KernelPanic-A.jpg, however I am unable to get a picture that is helpful because the screen will continuously scroll those trace messages much faster than is possible to read them. and when you look at them they are all one big blur.

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nv"
EndSection
C. When I reboot after removing the video card I get an error that says it couldn't load X. then it gives the messages found in the 2 log files i have attached.

D. When i reboot after editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the Driver setting to 'nouveau' I get the error screen shown bellow in in the screenshots named C-Trace-A.jpg and C-Trace-B.jpg, again edited for file size.

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nouveau"
EndSection
E. When I reboot after removing the video card I get an error that says it couldn't load X. then it gives the messages found in the 2 log files i have attached.

If you need more detail please ask, I will be checking this thread several times a day for replies.,

Thank you for your help.


Here is a URL to the Log files, I couldn't upload them both, also due to restriction imposed on this forum:

I would like to add that I have had problems installing some packets and drivers that i believe relate to this problem.

I have screenshots of some of the errors if you would like to see them.

1) read http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490
2) try the "nvidia" driver. Nouveau is _not_ supported here,
"nv" maybe, but it's probably not what you want.
3) tell us which nvidia driver (nvidia, not nouveau nor nv)
you installed, how you installed it (READ the sticky)
and create a nvidia-bug-report file as mentioned in the
other sticky thread ( http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 )

I wish to use SELinux so here is the output for that:

Any ideas?

Problem is I don't think i have an 'nvidia' driver installed because I did try changing my driver to 'nvidia' in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and it gave me the same Kernel Panic error i get when i don't edit the xorg.conf file.

and the 2nd link you gave is hard for me to understand, im not 100% with the file system yet, I'm new to Linux and I am used to win32 based file systems. I am getting the hang of it but I am not clear on what zander was talking about in that sticky thread.

New Error Info:

I went to BFG tech's website for support and they linked me to nvidia's website support page for drivers for x86 linux.

They instructed to download
Code:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12.pkg1.run
then to
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run
( my path was different so i added the correct path)

After following their instructions i got this output:
