I hope this is the right area to post this....
Anyhow, I ran thru the whole 9 yards everyone else has with installing the nvidia drivers from their site and here's one way I did it that was by far I think the easiest.
After downloading your driver to say /home/tbonejo/, open up a terminal and do su to get to root.
[root@localhost tbonejo]# gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Edit your file by commenting or deleting the "Load DRI" part under the module section.
Go down to the Device section and replace the "nv" driver with "nvidia".
Close out of gedit.
then once it loads again...log in as root.
cd /home/tbonejo(your username)
type "dir" to see whats there, that way the nvidia driver you downloaded is there and easy to retype everything as it should be.
Run the installer by typing:
Once thats done, type:
And thats it, you bypassed using the vi editor while in textmode, which I know for myself was a real pain to work with.
Then once your in graphic mode again, do that:
gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf as root and make sure the "Load glx" is listed under the module section.
You should be good to go now.
Hope this helps a little.
