Screen went blank after installing Display drivers

Just finished wiping and re-installing F12 From a DVD on an Dell Inspiron 9300 with a NV 6800. The NVidia site driver refused to install, so I used the method documented here

"rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm
yum --enablerepo=rp*g install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64
reboot"

as instructed to in the sticky. On rebooting, after the load animation, the screen goes blank/black. If I click around, I can hear some beeps from the OS so I assume that things are running but i just can't see anything.

How can I resolve this problem?

I had that too, but I forgot to add "nouveau.modeset=0" boot option.
Now it works almost correct.

Yes. It was more or less a "cut'n'paste" with the exception su (for obvious reasons).

Press tab at boot to get grub screen, press 'a' to ammend add the nouveau.modeset=0 at end of line then pres 'b' to boot,
once started you will still need to add it to grub.conf (follow guide)
