Here is what i did to get nvidia working.
**Note, if you can ssh to your box than you could just edit your /etc/inittab to refelect 3 instead of 5 and then boot it back up or change your "nvidia" in xorg.conf to "nv" and boot back up. If you can't get to your box through ssh you might as well re-install since there was nothing on it.
Ok, back to the how to:
1.) su -
2.) cd /usr/src
3.) wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...-2.6.6.tar.bz2
4.) tar -xvjpf linux-2.6.6.tar.bz2
5.) cp /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358/configs/kernel-2.6.5-i686.config /usr/src/linux-2.6.6/.config
After step 5 you need to
then you can do
6.) cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.6 && make oldconfig

7.b) make rpm
#rpm -ivh rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/kernel-2.6.6-1.i386.rpm
8.) vi /etc/inittab
*edit the runlevel to "3" instead of "5"
9.) cd /tmp
10.) wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...-5336-pkg1.run
11.) reboot (chosse 2.6.6)
you should then be at a login prompt without graphical
12.) login as root
13.) sh /tmp/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
14.) vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
!!change "nv" to "nvidia" , also comment out #"dri"
15.) modprobe nvidia
16.) telinit 5
