Hi Joe. I'm not trying to sidestep your problem, but havn't had much to do 
with src rpms, or Nvidia drivers.  Fernando should be back on the job 
tomorrow, and may be able to offer some constructive help. As the 2.6.12-0.21 
kernel worked ok with the Nvidia drivers without the kernel source being 
installed, this may be a completely different problem with the 2.6.14 kernel.

Apologies for not being able to help any further. Nigel.
