I started using fedora since last week so a complete newbie. I am using Amd Athlon X64( acer aspire 4530) with nvidia geforce 9100m graphics card. I installed fedora 15 and at present at kernel level 220.127.116.11-5.fc15.x86_64.
I installed nvidia drivers using rpmfusion method using this link : http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
After reboot, i just get a screen with the f symbol and nothing comes up. I did a little research and found that the below command return results and i need to disable nouveau module.
lsmod |grep nouveau
I also found that in order to disable this I can use the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file . However here is the issue that I am facing:
I am unable to get a command promt and basically unable to get a terminal . Hence posting this from a different machine .
I found a way of passing /bin/sh parameter to kernel to get a shell. Which I get and i can access /etc/* and other directories. However when I try to modify any file, it says it is a read only system and I am unable to modify any file although the id and whoami show root.
Since, I am unable to modify any file , I am unable to apply any of the solutions provided to fix my drivers issue. I also tried passing rdblacklist=nouveau to the kernel but that does not good and it brings me back to the same 'f' icon screen.
Any suggestions guys.

I found it.. passed linux 3 as kernel option and it booted into init 3 and I made the changes. nvidia drivers are running now
