Agreed, it SHOULDN'T make a difference.  But I'll give it a shot...
1. "Applications | System | Software Management" (kpackagekit)
2. Search for "kmod-nvidia"
3. Select "akmod-nvidia" & "kmod-nvidia"
4. Install the following packages:
5. "Apply"

NOTHING was added to the end of the kernel line in grub.conf.  Also, here is the 
contents of my xorg.conf file as it stands after I installed the above packages:
    # Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display
     Section "Files"
             ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
     Section "ServerFlags"
             Option      "AIGLX" "on"
    Section "Device"
            Identifier  "Videocard0"
            Driver      "vesa"
    Section "Extensions"
            Option      "Composite" "Enable"
So, I'm going to delete xorg.conf, add "rdblacklist=nouveau nomodeset" to the 
kernel line and reboot...

I'll get back with you in a few minutes.
