When I installed, or tried to install the nvidia drivers, I got a message saying that the Rivafb module needs unloaded before I can use the Nvidia drivers. Do I just need to change xorg.conf or do I also need to do something with the kernel modules? Thanks.
yes you won't have any problem doing this. It should fall back to vesa. if you rmmod that module. Just reconfigure your xorg.conf and then startx after you do that if you get errors then post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
