Default Please, a clear procedure to install 8762 on Fedora5

Hi,
i have a dual amd 64 with two NVIDIA 7900XTX. Anyone can give me a clear reference (or a procedure) about how install nvidia 8762 drivers on Fedora 5?

I tried all the possibilities discussed in this forum.

Is it really necessary the patch?

Thank you.

@ugoerr: you shouldn't need to apply any patches unless you're using a recent pre-release kernel.

It works now!
I have a workstation with two graphics board and X is not capable to choose the primary video device. I removed one of the graphics board and now it works!

Then, this means that SLI under Linux is not yet available?

It is available. It helps to read READMEs.

As mooninite noted, you didn't configure xorg.conf for SLI. Please see the NVIDIA driver README:
