Dan, you need to click on the links below, in order, while running Firefox. Once you clicked on the link Firefox will ask you how to Open the file. Here you can simply use the default and open the file with the default application 'Package Installer'. Then Firefox will call Package Kit, which asks Do you want to install this file ?. Click OK to begin install; Package Kit then will complain about a Missing security signature; once you tell Package Kit to install the package nevertheless it will move on and install it. That's all.

you need to click on this link first: http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm

And this link second: http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm

After that, go to your terminal, su to root and then type:

yum install kmod-nvidia

That should pull in the latest 185.18.36 nvidia drivers for your kernel.
I dumped Fedora and did a Fedora 11 re-install to see what I'd get (I still enjoy installing Distros from time to time and HEY! It's Saturday! ":O}

Let you know how it turned out once I re-boot...":O}
