Complete! does anyone recommend any particular action here? should i try to uninstall, and re-install this software?

what else do you need to know about the details?

yum remove kmod-nvidia
yum clean all

Then go to System>Administration>Security Level and Firewall>Selinux set it to permissive and try installing again, I'm pretty sure you can set it back to enforcing after the install but I never did because I use the 3g driver and it gets in the way.
