    If you installed the 'lynx' package I would boot into init 3, setup my networking, download the NVIDIA drivers package using lynx (text based web browser, http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...-6629-pkg1.run ), install it, configure my XFree86.conf file in accordance to what I wanted/ needed to change (When you install the graphics drive it will give you a path to some documentation to help you with the XFree86.conf file). That should work for fixing your problem.

    Fedora Core 3 doesn't use XFree86, it uses X.org, and there's an additional step to the instructions in the nVidia driver's README for Fedora Core 3.
    Near the bottom of this page, there's a part on getting the nvidia driver working with udev, which is neccessary.
