Default NVIDIA driver all of a sudden not working on FC3: nvidia: Unknown parameter `'

hi,

i've just recently upgraded to Fedora Core 3, and was using the 7167 drivers - then, all of a sudden, they stopped working - the kernel module couldn't load, something about an 'unknown paramater'. couldn't get them working no matter what ... anyway, i reinstalled fedora core 3, and got the new 7174 drivers, installed them, and things were going fine until rebooting a while ago, and again it failed to load the module ...

i've attatched a copy of nvidia-bug-report ...

any ideas?

Please check the line with the NVIDIA alias entry in your `modprobe` configuration file (most likely /etc/modprobe.conf) for trailing blanks.
