Nvidia drivers & leigh123linux guide

Ok I followed the guide to install the nvidia drivers for my card and it failed. After doing some reading, from what I can tell the guide that's there includes an "updates-testing" repo that is now closed. Do I want to wait for new instructions to be posted, or do I open up that repo so that I can download the files that are mentioned? (And probably downgrade some of the ones on my computer in the process.)

You should use the rpmfusion repository which unfortunately still doesn't have a repository for Fedora 15. However they will most certainly have one soon. So check out their website from time to time and until they get their Fedora 15 repository up and running, use the default Nouveau driver.

All they will do is move rpmfusion development to a F15 folder on the rpmfusion server.
why wait for someone to move them>
