    Fedora 11 reached end of life in June of 2010. I recommend installing a currently maintained version. The latest stable is Fedora 14 and Fedora 15 is scheduled for release in about a month.

    The process for installing the non-free nvidia drivers is about the same in all of them, though.

    Fedora does not support Nvidia proprietary drivers.

    I would suggest you migrate to something like Debian. Try Debian Mint which's Debian based.

    Most distros force you to add the NVIDA drivers after the install as they are not open sourced code. It is easy to add them afterward. A very good site to help yoou install mp3, video, fonts, etc can be found at: The Unofficial Fedora FAQ

    What I meant to say was that, unlike in Debian it's not in their official repository, yeah there might be third party repositories like with Debian (Debian-multimedia).

    Hello Youngtrigun, welcome to one of the best Linux forums on the planet. If you cannot solve the problem with the expert advice you get from here I will be very surprised. I myself am a very old (69 years) newbie and having a lot of time on my hands, have trolled the linux web for info' but found none better than this forum. Just ask, try, and enjoy. Good luck ,Bob.
