nVidia driver install on Fedora

Damm! Its gotta be easier than that! I tried installing the latest nVidia driver from the website, Logged out of X, installed OK (I think). Went back to KDE, tried to edit the config file. Rebooted X.... NOT! I musta done something wrong, as X wouldnt restart. So i formtted / Reinstalled Fedora. Is there an easier way?

I did what this said and everything was fine. This was with Fedora as well. Try doing it this way. Good luck!
