Install the RPM Forge Repo. For CentOS 5 would be:
http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.
rpm
rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
yum install dkms --enablerepo=*\rpmforge
yum install nvidia-dkms --enablerepo=*\rpmforge
Your xorg config file will get updated also,
I have never heard of "nouveau".
