Apparently you haven't looked very hard, or at all. A quick Google search turns up posts regarding Fedora and nVidia, with 'step-by-step' directions:
http://fedorasolved.org/video-solutions/nvidia-bin

The instructions are also on on nVidia's website, along with the latest drivers.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html

If you "have tried so many times", you must be doing the same thing over and over...so why do you expect different results?

open a terminal, run "init 3" log in and try again. If you're not aware an "X Server" means the graphical display. You need to do it purely from a text console.
