I "wish" to not load the or even install the nouveau driver by default.
I want to use the NVIDIA binary driver.

I have tried a number of things:

1) in my kickstart package section add the line:

This did not work - it was still installed.

2) use the nvidia installer and it asks to create a modprobe.conf file 
to blacklist
the driver. I said yes thats what I want. I verified the file being 
present and rebooted.
The driver is still loaded "lsmod | grep nou" still showed it present.

3) I tried "rpm -e xorg-x11-drv-nouveau --nodeps". This seeming worked 
the files for nouveau were still present. find / | grep nouveau showed 
driver files and more....

So - anyone know how to get this off of my machine???
I thought the "-" in the kickstart package section would work, but no.

Thanks so much for any thoughts.
