point your browser to http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-4496.html
and download the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

and then type
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

after installation follow the readme text to
edit XF86Config to change the driver from "nv" to
"nvidia" and then delete load "dri" and load "Glcore' if they exist !

then type is startx

Dont forget he might have selected a graphical boot in rh9. If you did that then you have to boot to a run level 3 instead of 5. Then you can install the nvidia drivers as described above.
