Question Do I have to uninstall nvidia drivers, before putting my old video card back in?

I got a new nvidia card a while back, and got it installed and working fine with my fedora core 5 box. But now I want to put the nvidia card in a newer box I just got, and put the original video card back in my Fedora 5 box.

Do I have to uninstall the nvidia drivers first, and if so how do I go about doing this?

Shouldn't have to no. What kind of card is the old one? Just change the Driver value in xorg.conf from nvidia to vesa and comment out Load GLX and you should be to swap cards.
