Duh!  I hate it when that happens.

I did this:

[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# /etc/yum.repos.d
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# rm -f elrepo.repo
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# yum clean all
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# rpm -Uvh 
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=elrepo\* 
install kmod-nvidia*
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=elrepo 
install kmod-nvidia*

  You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
  You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root at mushroom yum.repos.d]#

It looks like there is a dependency conflict.  It want's to install both 
nvidia-x11-drv.i686 0:290.10-1.el6.elrepo and nvidia-x11-drv-173xx.i686 
0:173.14.31-1.el6.elrepo which conflict with each other.  Is it safe to 
use --skip-broken to get around this?
