As I tried yesterday, the Nvidia driver download from Nvidia 8756 putt
into a path /usr/X11R6/lib which is wrong and X11 in Fedora Core 5 is
renamed which is /usr/lib/xorg/modules and some path changed. So If u
install the Nvidia driver from Nvidia site which is faster than livna
but need to put it into right path by manual or making a symbolic link
to it. I have tried and it also work...

Fianlly, I choose livna because it is easy and convenience
