[PlanetCCRMA] Nvidia driver & planetccrma-core-edge-smp

When I installed using FC4 and the PlanetCCRMA packages, I had to use the NVidia driver shell script on the command line.  It still was pretty simple, although it did recompile the kernel.

So, my recommendation would be to install Fedora, then install CCRMA kernel, then install the NVidia driver from the shell script.
