For anyone following this thread who is seeing the same issue. I still don't
know why the atrpms nvidia-graphics packages are looking for the 2.6.29
kernels in F10. However, I worked around the problem by installing the
rpmfusion nvidia drivers instead. Here are the steps I used:

1. Temporarily disabled the atrpms repos in /etc/yum.repos.d. I actually
just moved all the atrpm repo config files into /tmp
2. Used uname command to find my exact kernel:

# uname -r

3. Used yum list command to find the nvidia package I needed:
# yum list *nvidia* | grep

4. I know that my card uses the 96xx legacy driver, so I chose from the list
of available packages the following:

and installed it with yum:
yum -y install kmod-nvidia-96xx-

The yum command pulled in all the dependencies from rpmfusion, and set up
the card for me in a new xorg.conf. Everything appears to be working at this
point except for the annoying nvidia logo at x startup.

Hope this helps some other folks!
