Be aware that if your graphic card is not recent enough, the installed
driver will tell you that you need a particular prior version from
nvidia's site. After using the Rpmforge version, I had to uninstall it,
leaving the kernel devel stuff in place, and get the .96xx version from
nvidia's site. It was still essentially a no-hassle operation though.
You should have NP either way.
