It's not really a matter of uninstalling the nvidia driver as telling X not to use it. Take a look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf (assuming slackware here, for FC1 I think they were still on XFree so, X86Config), and edit out the "card" setting from being "nvidia" to being... whatever it is for ati, I think its: "flglrx" something off like that, its in the ATI docs. There's no need to actually delete the nvidia module.
