I am trying to install Fedora 17 on a laptop with an NVidia GeForce 7950 graphics card. I need some help getting the NVidia driver installed over the Nouveau driver. It appears that the NVidia installer will work fine once the Nouveau driver is no longer active. How do I prevent Nouveau from loading in Fedora 17?

The tutorial that @Sardathrion mentioned is taken from here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1114769

The author of this post is the maintainer of the kmods at RPMFusion, so I prefer referring folks to this post than other blogs etcetera.
