[CentOS] Best way to configure proprietary NVidia driver on CentOS ?

What's the best (cleanest, easiest, whatever) way to install the proprietary 
NVidia driver on CentOS 5.5 ? Usually I'm using the RPMForge 3rd party repo 
and compile the odd missing package myself from a Fedora SRPM. But the nvidia 
packages look a bit like a mess. DKMS has errors in the startup script 
(looking for a nonexistent log_action_msg and the likes), so I wonder if it's 
best to just download the driver from nvidia.com and build it myself. 

Then I thought : I'd rather ask.
