How to get rid of nouveau driver (permanently)

I am running F12.

With prior kernels - or before - I could simply rename the nouveau.ko driver to nouiveau.ko.bad. Then the kernel would load the nv driver instead, and everything worked great. FWIW: adding rdblacklist="nouveau" to the kernel params in grub.conf didn't seem to do anything.

On a recent update, a new kernel was added: I did the same rename trick as before, but this time the kernel still loaded the nouveau driver, and then X failed to load. So I had to fall back to the older kernel.

Is there a way to keep nouveau from loading with the newest kernel (ie, the one above)? And also, is there a way to keep nouveau from loading for any new kernels?
