How to install an older version of nvidia driver?
may be someone could give me a hint how to install the "NVIDIA" driver version: 1.0-4349 that was orginally designed for "Redhat_8" (i think), but my system now is "RedHat_9". For this driver my machine "Dell - Inspiron 8000" was running smoothly the best way. (Had to install "Redhat_9" cause for the video mode.)
For a little help i would be glad!

Your bes bet would be to download the tar files at nvidia's archives and compile the drivers by yourself. Get the release notes for that particular version, READ THEM, and be sure to have the following installed:
you can check out those with the following command (for example):
rpm -qa | grep gcc
If you don't have ANY of them, get them from the installation CD's (example):
rpm -ivh kernel-source[blahblahblah].rpm
If everything is on place, start a console only session (if you're running X):
Login as root.
Type: init 3 <----------This will shutdown X
Go to your nvidia driver's folder.
tar xvzf NVIDIA_kernel[blahblahblah].tar.gz
tar xvzf NVIDIA_GLX[blahblahblah].tar.gz
Config your XF86Config file if you haven't done so.
Use the source, Tux.
