Hello again Jon :)

I'm assuming you mean a newer fedora kernel meaning 2.6.8-1.521 as
opposed to kernel.org's 2.6.9rc2 or similar.  If you're using an updated
fedora kernel or one of Axel's you'll probably want to update the kernel
before you set up nvidia or ivtv etc.  Kernel modules are specific to
the kernel version they are compiled against.  Besides I don't think
atrpm's has the nvidia kernel module for the FC2 stock kernel since the
nvidia driver at the time (6106) was incompatible with fedora's 4k stack
kernel.  You could do the dist-upgrade and/or install kde-redhat's kde
before if you so desire it doesn't matter.
