Start by downloading the drivers. The documentation that come with the drivers is very verbose but read it thoroughly.

If you still experience problems, use the search function in these forums. This question has been answered more than a thousand times by now.

You need to create the livna repository and then uninstall any nvidia drivers that are already installed. Then you simply do
yum --enablerepo livna install kmod-nvidia
and that's it.

Just make a new file called livna.repo in /etc/yum/repos.d and copy over the lines below:

Code:
[livna]
name=Livna for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=
    http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
    http://livna.cat.pdx.edu/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
    http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
    http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
    http://mirror.atrpms.net/livna/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
    ftp://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
failovermethod=priority
#mirrorlist=http://rpm.livna.org/mirrorlist-7
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

[livna-debuginfo]
