I would try DL'ing the FC6 package and manually installing it (example:
rpm -ivh nvidia-x11-drv-96xx) I would do this over downloading the
driver from Nvidia because the freshrpms package will re-compile
automatically with kernel updates. Using the driver from nvidia you'll
have to re-compile manually.
