[clug] Nvidia driver on a Pionerr Laptop

I had issues with FC4 and nVidia too.  I got around it by doing the following:

- Turn SELinux OFF during installation (this is the key to my success
and WASN'T on any web-sites at the time)
- Run the binary install file (mine was NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7664-pkg1.run)
- Run the following as root:
# modprobe nvidia
# cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
# chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

Then change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file as per the nVidia guide.

Hope that helps,
