Nvidia 6106 Rivafb disable?

Hiya! I downloaded and manually installed the new Nividia 6106 version download as YaST's YOU didn't have the version for easy downloading/install.

I followed the compile instructions to the letter.

I got a message saying this Nvidia 6106 driver conflicts with the Rivafb driver, which is installed.

So far I'm working, but I would like to disable the rivafb driver. I did a cursory search in YaST, et al, but found nothing.

I use Suse 9.1 Pro.
I've the new kernel 2.6.5-7.95
My video card is Nvidia GeForce FX 5900 Ultra (BFG 5950 o/c model)

Is there a practical way I can do this?
