Default I think I got it to work. Please read. :)

It was weird. I tried installing from source and from RPM. I have RH 8.0. Each time though when I started X, it would crash right away giving me a Signal 11 error. Today I went into GNOME's display (in system settings)...I changed my resolution and also made sure nvidia was selected as the driver my video card was using. Well when I logged out and went back to X, I got the nvidia logo when X started. Also, when I 'lsmod', I see the nvidia kernel as a module. So....Is it working now?? I'm not sure of a way to test it.

That may also be a tip for those of you having problems and are using Red Hat 8.0 (Or Gnome 2.0). Make sure the driver is selected in the display settings in GNOME.

Yep. That means it's working now. I downloaded the 1491 and it complete messed things up. I'm looking for older drivers that are more stable.
